now that the 640 is on its wheels again, I am turning my attention to the 841 I just acquired. Needs lift cover overhaul, but more importantly it stalls under load
Starts. Runs, but as you let out the clutch with a bush hog on the back, it stalls. If you baby the clutch out slowly, it'll pick up rpms and run, unless you hit a patch of heavy stuff and then it dies.
I will go through the fuel system this weekend and probably service/overhaul the carburetor to eliminate that as a source f trouble; it has become my habit now to tear down, clean, and service the carb as the first or nearly first thing I do when I buy a new tractor. I seem to like doing it.
I do not know how to test the governor, short of tearing it down, too, which I do not wish to do unless absolutely necessary. Also, this site does not list repair parts for the governor, and its about $250 from CNH if available at all.
hints and suggestions welcomed.
