Near Endon on the Caldon Canal the engine started reving out of control and wouldn't stop for a while. A cotrel pin had fallen out on a link to the governer and the engine oversped. We replaced the pin with a bolt and luckily the engine re-started but the pully running the alternator was out of line and we couldn't get the belts back on. We had to take the pully off when we found damage to the crank end. Apparently we were lucky the engine didn't throw a piston or the flywheel through the casing.
