I hope this helps alot of you, I spent hundreds of dollars trying testing and failing until I found this out.............
for everyone that has been working on a old wd knows how frustrating it can be to get it to idle perfect then try to engage a tool or even drive around the barn yard and have the darn thing stall and blow out all sorts of diffrent colored smoke. The Governor weights get gunky and stick to the gear that drives them.
now granted if the oil was changed all the time and all that this might not be a problem but common people the darn things are 50+ years old
Grandpa told me to check it out and guess what there was the problem.......cleaned em up real well with some brake clean and end of problem
so next time you hear of or are giving advise on this please remember this simple fix it should save you alot of cash........
another tip is buy the easy start lawn mower type plugs the suckers cost a little more but wont foul

My bill just for Parts
electronic ignition $85
rebuilt the carb 3 times $60
cleaned out fuel tank/ new fuel line,pitcock, and filter $25
3 sets of plugs keep fouling them $25
plug wires $20
distributer/ coil/ points once$45
re wired $20
there really 280 bucks already and im serious i didnt need to do any of it except clean the darn weights......

I really hope this helps ya and saves you some doo rey mee.......
good luck

Today's Featured Article - Identifying Tractor Smells - by Curtis Von Fange. We are continuing our series on learning to talk the language of our tractor. Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
