funny, im scared to use (my) paintball gun since last time i used it a metal piece shot out the back and fired into my wall in my room. well i sold it to my friend for $10, he rebuilt it and another piece backfired lol.

ever see that thousand ways to die episode where the kids paintball tank threads strip out and it fires off into his friend and smacks his face and he dies. lol.

i loose parts all the time too! especially tools.

You really need to get organized!!! That would drive me insane! Clean workbench, containers for parts, ziploc baggies and a sharpie marker for fasteners and small parts...

we go to wasaga and you can get some pretty good deals there, buy 2000 paint balls get free Co2. but you have a 80 oz tank so your basically set for a good while, no matter how much of a trigger finger you are

You have two choices. Put at all back to stock, and I do mean ALL, our tear out the governor completely. Period. There is not bubblegumming, duct-taping, jury-rigging, or McGyvering this thing. The governor will not function correctly if there's parts of the assembly missing or incorrectly connected, so you might just as well rip it out. If you do not rip it out, there's a chance that either one if the internals will let go causing catastrophic engine damage, or the arm could swivel over and hit the crank, also causing catastrophic engine damage.

Since the governor can no longer control the carb properly, it's existence is dead pointless. Either source the correct parts or remove it like a tumour.

well found a way and got everything back to stock , used some diffrent bolts, and spacers, but stock, it appears that it holds the engine at half throttle, to keep as idle, and then full when you pull the throttle arm back

I have absolutely no idea what you mean. Half throttle is not idle.

Now, did you follow the instructions in the service manual to properly set the governor up?

You mean the carb. The governor is inside the engine block.

exactley. a little mixed up, the carb throttle, is set to half, with the stock configuration, and when you pull the throttle arm, it goes to full

If you have everything connected and set up correctly, go ahead and try to start it. Or have you?
