Governor spring is Ok. Moved governor link to carb by hand to the idle position on tractor, still races. It's a carb problem because I put old one on and the tractor idles fine. Also tried new carb out on my C and it does the same thing. Something isn't closing on carb. Could needle be stuck or something else not assembled correctly?

Don't think it could be a needle in the carb, in order to run away like that the throttle butterfly has to be opening to let more air in. Sounds like the governor is pulling the throttle open. check to make sure the lever that connects to the throttle is not installed upside down. Found that on a stationary engine a few months ago. Also found one that had the choke rod hooked to the throttle, although it wasn't on an Allis. Might check though.

Ed, That's the first thing I thought of when I read this; some throttle levers are hooked up differently for different applications. I ran into this last fall when I adapted an old Zenith carb to a Gravely.
