What do I need to do to the governor on an engine out of a gleaner E combine when putting it into a WC Allis Chalmers tractor. Trying to put together a decent pulling tractor. Thanks.

Throttle lever on the combine overrides the governor, and closes the butterfly. throttle lever on a tractor changes the tension on the governor springs, and gives you full range for load/power. Gov. on combine is a "min/max" style, not "full range" I beleive you need to change the front cover on the engine, to get the tractor governor control.

i have the gleanor front timing cover c gov e gleaner spring and full range of throttle didnt have full range until got rid of e gov. if you choose to change the front cover youll have to find a d17 cover the crank snout is larger in diameter.

the sprng attaches to the lever thats housed in the front timing cover its not physically part of the gov . it does raise the rpms because the fly weights have to generate more force to push the thrust bearing against the fork to over come the spring . the gov weight ramps are different on a gleanor or power unit than a tractor. trust me on this on been pulling a wd for a while . i can run as high rpms as 5500 and as low as 1400 rpms pulling with gov. intake.i use a wc gov with a gleanor spring or a 175 spring which ever i have at the time and on occasion a d 17 spring usually pulls down lower with d 17 spring though.

The spring is different and is hooked in a different spot. Take a look at the WC gov and then either use that spring hooked up the way it was in the WC or buy a new spring and hook it the same as in the WC. No other parts in the gov need to be changed. Be sure you syncronize the gov to carb. Go by the AC manual not by the IT manual as the IT manual is wrong and your gov won't be as snappy.

I think youll like the tractor type governor better . combine govs surge if there not running at high idle . you can try the combine gov it only takes 30 minutes tops to change out to the tractor gov.

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
