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

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.

Have you oiled the governor friction pads?
