John UK was able to send me a scale drawing. Look him up on the Harry Ferguson forum.

My 202 is currently without one. I did fit a spring all the way from the throttle shaft to the hole on the thermostat housing. The governor does seem to work properly so I'm not really sure what it's exact purpose is. John UK has said that the governor will not work at all without it but mine seemed to work even without it before I had realized that I needed it. Ignorance is bliss I guess.
Tony, what's your theory?

My theory Inno? The previous owner got a drill press from Santa Claus. Awhile ago from the looks of it. Part 2 of theory? Rather than buy the proper spring, or hunt down something atleast close to original, he made this plate to potentially use each and ever spring in his tin can of springs... if the need arises...
I will go out and shovel snow off the tarps and hope the flash and focus work under there, now that my chest cold is breaking up, I might as well go out and get a relapse for you fellow wrench warriors...That's why I couldn't figure out what Matt was talking about, I have 7 continentals, and don't remember seeing nothing like that before... but it does look like a cool drill press project for a long winter's night... for those of us with a heated garage of course... Canada. The lucky country.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

We think so.
I guess that one is a "universal" linkage. My question is, how critical is this thing ? If none of your tractors seem to have one and my 202 came without, how necessary is it really? The 35 has one and.......ya know what Tony, don't risk a lung infection, I'll take a picture of mine which is still apart.......heck, I might even take it off the tractor and get some measurements or lay it on a piece of graphing paper or something similar. You get better Tony and leave the hard work to me.

Agh what's a little fatal lung infection between friends?
I am from a long line of frost bite canuks... first one showed up in 1609, and we been dying of lung infections ever since.... When Matt showed us that perferated thing, I then knew he was talking about the 'J hook' I call em. I was thinking more about the thermostat housing...
That 'J' is only still hooked up on the TO30 with a loader, and the dead MF 50, so I actually never noticed either before now. I saw how it would/could 'dampen' the thobbing effect of the other linkage and spring, that wound up screen door spring on the rebuilt TO30 idea, because, like John said, it evened out the torque?fast idle? when I was re-adjusting everything when she got restarted and loosened up after the overhaul. So I am like the guy that owned Matt's- a spring hoarder and mis-user... sad but true...
The rest... well... nice pic of the rusty one just hanging is on the TO35, none on the 40, the one with the cab and snow plow has the just the spring just hanging there, and I think, as she stalls when pulling the angle lever when still cold, putting that spring back on might just help her keep going till warmed up.... @#$%^&* SNOW!!!
BTW, good ol Ontario made Cockshutt has a whole different governor affair on the F162, so no pics of that or the Perkinses....
