Dwayne -

Call Luke at US Coach in NJ, he'll have that little drive gear assembly on it's way to you as soon as he gets off the phone.

1-888-262-2434, between 9-5 Eastern.

The VS2-6 is actually a pretty rugged transmission, in some ways more so than the V-730.  But it does have it's quirks, and age is definitely creeping up on it.

FWIW & HTH. . .

Hi Dwayne & Folks:

The drive on your governor is usually made of Bakelite so that if it shatters it does not damage the transmission.

We have the drive and pin in stock and you can reach us toll free at: 1-888-262-2434.

I Hope this HELPS!!!

Happy & SAFE!!! Bussin' to All.

Thanks everybody for their help, I really needed to get the bus going for this weekend so I had one of my customers who is a local machine shop build one out of Delran which is similar to Bakelite. It definitely was the "gear" as I took it for a drive last night and with the oil line tightened up it shifts so much smoother. I have always known there was a leak back under there but my loss of fluid was so little I just never paid it any heed. Apparently that is bad and I think I know why the gear did break as there was a bit of galling on the inside of the governer where the shaft runs through it and if that slowed down at all it would of course just snap the bakelite. My shop cleaned it all up and I am hoping I am good to go.
Also thank you to Luke for the quick response to the posting, do you have a website? I will be needing parts in the future and would like to give you some business.
