CA governor problem (1952)

Report to Moderator

I posted a message a few days back concerning my governor not working. Someone gave me some advise as to test it. I put the tractor in high gear with the brakes on and kept letting the clutch out while watching the governor arm. it most definately does NOT move. Our allis chalmers B does move, i tried it too. So i assume that the weights and pins are worn out in the governor? I know the linkage is correct and hooked up right. I've looked at the weights and pins before and they were worn some but i guess a little play can mean a lot. Where is a good place to buy these weights and pins? Thanks for your help.

On my "C" I had a problem with the rod that goes from one side of the engine to the other rubbing on the water pump or something. Some adjusting is done by bending that rod, but it dosn't bend very easily. Just thought I'd let you know.

There is a spring on the left side of the tractor on the control rod by the carburetor. It was missing on my CA and the governor will not work right without it. Is it on yours???

mine was missing too but I put a spring on it last fall. it's just a small spring that connects from the rod to the linkage and i believe it's to take up slack or play in the rod because the governor doesn't move very much. Do you think that's what it's for?

I was the one that suggested you test your tractor by locking up the brakes. I have never seen a governor that had all the weights and pins that didnt work some. Unless the sleeve or thrust brg is stuck. I am curious as to what happens when you open it wide open with the hand throttle? Does it go wild or does it do nothing?Post back in the same place so we dont have to hunt.

i can't figure it out either. and the sleeve and thrust bearing aren't stuck. they're actually in good shape. when I move the hand throttle, the engine will rev up fine. you can get a pretty high rpm out of it and the arm on top of the governor does move when you move the hand throttle. thanks for your help.
