Kohler Courage SV541-3212 18HP

Purchased in 2015 on a Cub Cadet and this year after just 35hours of easy use (don't mow much in Colorado) suddenly it ran wide open. Being out of warranty I took it apart and the governor fell of the shaft and down into the engine, it appears only the governor assembly is destroyed, pic attached. Guess I'll see if all is well when I put it back together with hopefully with a better governor. Very dissatisfied with the Kohler product must be getting cheap parts when they build.

    Welcome aboard!! You are fortunate it didn't shed the connecting rod too. The Courage series is built in China by someone else, probably Loncin, and does not have a particularly good reputation.
