Hunting with a spark engine is not necessarly the fault of the governor... What does the engine do if you unhook the carb rod from the governor? Will it hold a steady idle? You may find the real problem is that the engine is running rough anyhow... and the governor is trying to compensate but on gas engines they seldom compensate quickly enough... Try spraying some ether around the intake manifold joints above the carb to check for vacuum leaks and make sure the carb itself is not suffering from plugged jets in the idle circuit...
Or it could be that the governor weight assembly is just worn out... I don't care for the idea that if fell apart in your hand...

Rod - I have not tried disconnecting the rod between the gov. and carb but when I get to it again on Thursday I'll give it a try and watch the linkage while I run the carb by hand. only two of the balls fell out the rest stayed in place which puzzled me but I could not see anything wrong but I am no expert. I will also try adjusting the linkage. when I got the tractor to rebuild it did not run including no wiring. I'll repost if I have any luck. Thank's for your reply

I don't have a repair manual in front of me, but I do believe that there are very specific instructions for adjusting that governor linkage. I know there was for a 3000 I did once, and it made a world of difference.

I think the operators manual actually has those instructions for adjustment...
