Hi all, I have a 48 SA that I've been using and learning on; I grew up with 2 cyl. JD's. I've done a pretty fair job on all the tasks that I've worked on; between the Shop Manual and info I gotten on here I been able to figure out most all the things that were troubling me. However I am having governor trouble and it has me pretty much stumped. The big main spring broke and I was able to buy a new one through Case/International and installed it and adjusted the carb linkage as outlined in the book. My issue has been when I start it up it goes to WOT no matter were the throttle is set and there is no response at all when I move the throttle. I shut down the engine and I have full throttle response. I took it back off and found that the Governor shaft spring was broken (#26). I replaced it with a spring I had in the shop and it does the same thing when I restarted it and according to the book it is a nonorderable part.
How heavy is this spring or am I looking in the wrong direction? Everthing is adjusted and free moving so am I looking in the right place or should I look at something else. All help and suggustions would be very usefull.
