He hasn't been posting on the board in a while but he still responds to emails. I have his directions saved and I had sent them to a few people needing them but somebody a while back said something on the board about people sending his directions to other people without his permission so I quit doing that. If you are on the tractor and you have it in high gear and hold the brake and let the clutch out does the governor arm move? If the bearing on the governor arm inside the timing cover goes bad it won't let the governor work like it supposed to. Did you orient the tab on the governor correctly before you put the timing cover back on?

The bearing on the governor arm is new and was properly lubricated prior to assembly. The governor arm itself moves freely with no hint of binding.

When seated on the tractor I tried observing the governor arm movements as per the instructions but I honestly can't tel if it's moving or not. My eyes tell me it's not moving but my view is restricted by the manifold heat shield so I can't say for certain either way. Tomorrow I'm going to have my wife video the governor arm as I lock the brakes and shift it into high gear to bog the engine down very briefly a couple of times to see if it moves or not.

Regardless, the tractor slows down considerably when a sudden load like a plow or box blade is applied by engaging soil, or by going from a level surface onto a slope. My first thoughts were carb and/or timing but they have both ben carefully checked and found to be withing spec.

It's got me stumped.
