Sorry, forgot to add that i changed oil in the mower that I swapped engines on and ran it quite a bit. When i check the oil, it is so clean it is hard to read. Shouldn't some of the old oil residue be adding color to the new if it is oiling right? I would think it is oiling some as i ran for a pretty good while and it has not locked up (yet). Just no governor action. Is the oil slinger not on the governor? Tx again. Hate to be such a pain, but i really don't want to change governors again if not neccessary.

Yes, the oil slinger is on the governor. If your oil was previously dirty, and you changed it and ran it awhile, it should have some color, like you said. Since your oil is so clean still, and you have no governor action, i would think that it is not meshing with the camshaft gear. I am pretty sure that the 11hp and 12hp governors are the same, maybe it slipped out of position as you installed the crankcase cover.
