We have been having trouble lately with our 170 gas. If you tap the throttle, the rpm's go way up. Its as if the govenor now only has two possitions. All or nothing. We replaced the carb early last year, and it ran fine all summer. Just in the past few weeks it has started this. What should I be looking for. Thanks guys.

Does a broken weight require a new govenor assembly? I intend on tearing into it on Saturday.

Are they accessable on the right side of the tractor, or do you need to take the hood panels off and come in from the front at the fan?

Don"t have a 170 in front of me but on a D17 you can access without removing sheet metal.

Today's Featured Article - Pop's Tractor of Gold - by Gary Teate. My father was a simple man but could repair just about anythin mechanical that was ever made.
