Fellas Im gona have to pull the gov. off my 37' WC and was wonderin if any one had any helpfull hints? It worked fine when I put her to bed for the winter and when I got her out this spring it wasnt workin right. I was wonderin if there is a spring or somthin internal that could of broke or somthin. The ol gal has been pretty much retired to parades and such since I restored it a couple years back.The dang thing has hardly any throttle range and ya cant even hardly pull a hill of anysize. I figure somthin must of give out while she was settin all winter on account of she worked fine when I put her up. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks alot, Hoss

hossman i think its a waist of time going into the gov. looking for loose parts every time i have had a gov. break and have had a lot of them break the tractor runs wide open with little to no throttle movement . it could be stuck but if it just set for the winter its probably a gunked up carb. thats my two since . and its youre time so spend it with youre tractor how you please .thanks mitch

Depends on if it still has the old style of weights in it. Most of the WC's were updated to the newer style weights that were cast aluminum I think. I would definately pull it out and take a look at it. Maybe see if you can pull the cover off of the front where the governor spring is in, and turn it over and look at it with a mirror. I don't think with the radiator on that you can look at it straight on. The older governor weights had a few more parts to let loose, and most of the parts were steel. The newer style ones, like that on the WD's had cast aluminum parts, so if she let loose, at least it was softer material then the gears.

Also, if you need a pic of the new style one, I have mine off so it would be easy to take a picture of it and send it to you. I think I also have a picture of the old style ones that I could send you. Mine was pretty wore out, so I found a good used one with the newer style weights to use if I ever get to working on my WC.
