Yes, governor pads were oiled and checked to confirm full motion of both
pads and the yoke to which they mount.

If anyone is still here on the mailing list(s)  What is your take on the
situation?  Problem: Edison Diamond Disc single spring motor does not keep a
constant speed. Spring does not seem to be caked with grease, judging from
the several inner coils one can pull out without having the whole spring
out. A small amount of grease was added. Old grease under the bull gear
plate was removed and fresh grease added. Governor screws have been
loosened, and tightened after the governor has spun around for a while.
bearing points are well oiled, gears lightly greased. Solution(s)?

Maybe a weak spring?  Have you oiled the governor friction pads?
