Let me correct that bad spelling . I am looking for a place to buy a Governor spring for a WD. Like for a 170. I found a dealer that has one but wants $40.00 . Thats seems way out of line for a spring

A WD spring also has a spacer inside the spring. I think it helps set the low idle. Not real sure. I do know that for the $$$$ it'd take to fix a blown up engine, a $40 spring seems pretty cheap. Suppose you could find a junkyard that would sell you one.

What kind of spring is this. I used to find any spring I wanted from a good auto store or hardware store or an auto speed shop for pennies. Is the 170 spring weaker or stronger than original WD?. Testing it would be difficult without a spring scale. But I would guess by feel would be the best way. If you want to experiment, otherwise go with a proven off the shelf spring.

170 0r 175 spring are stiffer which makes the high idle go up to 2200 and the 175 spring suppose to hold the rpms under load at 1800rpm.175 gov spring part number is 70226785-7 $75.00

that is what i paid for mine about 2 years ago. that will get you up to 1800-1900 rpms to pull with and it works great on my wd45 puller.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
