Is the whole linkage moving freely, nothing sticky or stiff? All connection points should not have excessive play but must also move very freely in order for it to work properly.

Linkage is all ok...... I actually fabricated a new governor to carb link. It all is free to move..... There is a little slop in the ball and socket at the compensator spring but that shouldn't stop the governor from working at all. The upright arm at the back of the generator doesn't even try to move to keep rpm in check.

By the way, the tractor is a 1959 MF204 with a Z134 Continental engine.

Do you have foot throttle peddle,if so make sure that it moves freely and the spring keeps the peddle at the top of its position,check for binding at the end where your cork washer would go also check hand throttle linkage clean and lubricate it all even under the dash!!!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I do have foot throttle and i am having problems with it but I wouldn't think it would matter.... Isn't the governor just working against the governor spring pressure? It shouldn't be trying to move the throttle pedal against the cork washer or the return spring correct? How much range of motion should the upright arm at back of gen. have when everything is working correctly? Mine seems to have no perceivable movement under load etc. The only time it moves is when I move the throttle.
Sorry guys, I am an auto technician but cars don't even have carbs anymore nevermind governors LOL

On my 202 I have foot throttle, the spring in the foot throttle works as the compensating spring,mine was almost siezed up and the spring broken.I had to take the peddle off to get it to work properly. Push on the peddle and watch the action of you throttle rod (where it connects under the dash see whats its doing. My governer lever only moves a 1/4 to 1/2" from idle to full throttle.
