Thanks to both who have responded. I drained the main jet; no change.

Have liberally applied PB blaster to the pivot on top of the governor; it moves much more freely, but still hunts, off and on ,while I am driving, pushing (has a plow), of just standing still.

As mentioned, I will keep putting the blaster on that pivot, as other far pivot is OK. Can't see where else you could free up binding. If this doesn't work after a few days, what is next step? Governor disassembly?

Just read last post; got me to wondering about that carb; didn't really adjust anything during the rebuilt (basically just replaced gaskets and needle valve,etc.).

Wonder about the wisdom of attempting to resusitate a (50-60 YO) carb.

Futzed around with a Weber 2 barrel on one of my Alfas for the longest time; finally just paid $200 for a new one, put it on, and presto, has run like gangbusters ever since. So, maybe a new IH carb is indicated?

Thoughts? (And cheapest place to get one!-looks like they run more than that DGV 36/32 that I got fro Peirce Manifold!)

I have never encountered binding governor linkage, it has always been loose.

Bet you have some loose junk in the carb. Since the main jet sits low it can clog up easy form any small piece of dirt or rust. I would pull the carb drain plug out of the bottom and let fuel flow a couple minutes. Catch it so you can use it and also to look for dirt etc in it. Also did you use a small wire to poke out the little hole in the main jet?? If not then do so it can only help.
As for comparing a Weber carb on an Alfa to that car it would be like comparing a Model T to a Corvette. Years ago I had a 1967 Alra Roemor which had 2-2 barrel side draft Webers on it and boy was that a fast car
