Me and my son have just recently redone a 1945 Farmall A engine. the tractor was sitting in our shed for about 5 years and haven"t done anything since purchased. so my son convinced me to redo it since it was locked up in number 2 cylinder so i figured mine as well. rebuilt engine and figured out the engine wont rev up all the way. so we took the governor apart and noticed that the thrust bearing was blown apart, the spring was almost worn through completely and the arm was a little egg shaped in the spring hole. we ordered the parts and put it back together and figured out it still wont rev up and everything in the governor was fine what should i do. we know there is a governor issue. thanks the tractor people

When I picked up my A one of the reasons I got it for the price I did was because it idled fast the guy had a spring from the gov. to the carb to try and slow it down. He had replace the rod also. I married the carb to the gov. and that was all it took. Pull the pin at the turn buckle throttle all the way forward, push the rod back toward the carb as far as it will go and adj. the turn buckle to were the pin slides in without force.

Did you retime the Gov with the carb? Also since the holes were a little worn that could be keeping it from reving up to stock rpms.
I cheat a little by putting a gov spring out of a 504 gov in and it will turn almost to many rpms then!
