Try cleaning out the air cleaner. You will be surpised at how much dirt that you can get out of it if you take it a part and pressure wash it out and re-oil. The tractor will run better.

Craig, First of all, if you have a book, check the governor and throttle linkage settings. If these are correct, the flyweights and pins on the governor assembly are probably worn. I have repaired our D17IV and on one of our '45's and they now respond and operate correctly. The weights and pins are available from Agco and are not to expensive. Tom
