Labelled Component Damage

Insights from the Woodward SGX Governor Inspection



We wanted to follow up on the recent insights we shared from our inspection of a Woodward SGX governor.

In case you missed it, you can catch up here.

We received some valuable replies from our community, and while no single response covered all the issues, I wanted to highlight Andy’s observations:

1) Worn main bushing
2) Worn oil pump drive gear
3) Worn terminal shaft
4) Worn terminal bush

Labelled Component Damage

Andy has been enlisted to address and repair these issues for the operator. Here’s an insight into his methods, with the new parts and originals side by side.
