I thing they are available separately or a bearing company would have them. I think they are 5/8 diameter.

Most any tractor parts store should have them #358081. Or like Bob says McMaster/Carr.

(quoted from post at 16:40:28 12/06/19) I took apart the governor today on this 46 2N I'm working on. Discovered twp little flat spots on each ball. Are my balls worn out or do you think i have another 73 years of wear.
$1 each to replace with new. I wouldn't even think twice about it. Find something(s) else the machine needs and place an order and replace. For $4 not something you want to have come back and give you trouble later.

How does the driveshaft off the governor look particularly the area where the balls ride?

Easy fix, just replace the balls. You should also consider the upper and lower race as well. Those flat spots are there because they hung up and stopped rotating a while ago. It suggests that they nested against the race and started riding in one spot. So while you have it apart do the right thing and get it back to full function.

You will be happy you did.

I just opened up and inspected my governor. The balls only had small flat spots that were not too bad. The lower and upper races were totally pitted and chewed up. I suspect the previous owner replaced just the balls to get it running to sell it. I just ordered the whole rebuild kit. Only want to do this job once!
