I have an oil leak on the fuel governor, and I can't find any parts break down further than what I have here (TM 9-2320-365-24P) page 88. There is a clamp (part number 29 on this diagram) that holds the offending part in.

My question is; What is under that clamp? If I pull this part off, what will come flying out at me? I'm thinking there is an O Ring leaking under there, but apprehensive about just pulling it out.

Any thoughts from someone "in the know"?

Thanks!

My part number 29 clamp broke and caused an oil leak. The clamp broke at the bolt hole. I was able to. End the clamp fingers and with washers make it work again. No oil leak now. Check that first. Easy fix.

I couldn't tell the clamp was broken until I took out the bolt. The part it holds in is attached internal to the gov and it won't come out. There is an oring seal on it, if it broke you may be able to stretch a new on over the back side of it. My leak stopped when i got the clamp to work again.
