I rebuilt the carburetor for the fourth time, replaced the sediment bowl & shut off valve, and installed an in line gas filter.
After hooking up all the linkages the engine started immediately, but at full speed, so I shut it off to check.
I tried manually to hold the throttle shut and restarted, but the engine still raced.
I checked and rechecked the linkage and cannot figure out why the throttle is working backwards, plus I figure I must have left something out or undone when rebuilding the carb.
It would not start when I tried to check a third time.
I really think the tractor may have simply turned on me, but I love her and can't bear the thought of putting her down.
Any thoughts on what I did to the carburetor or why the throttle linkage is whacko?

It ended up being a binding problem where I had used hairpin clips instead of cotter pins.
Once the original pins were in, things worked fine.
Thanks for your time and help.

Sounds to me like you put the main throttle shaft in the carb in upside down. take the carb off and remove the butterfly and idle bumpstop and roll the shaft 180 degrees, then reasemble. Even not running you should be able to shut the throttle with the linkage by shoveing it to idle. If the shaft's in backwords it will make everything in the throttle work backwords. Hope this helps, Dave.

I agree with Steve ninety nine percent. Just in case that is not the case I would guess it is a govner problem.

tom, i did the same thing on a D17 about 10 years ago. i switched the choke and throttle cables. when i choked the carb, i was pulling to wide open throttle. dont know if you can mix them on a WD or not,but worth looking at. The choke should be the back one closest to the operator. Made for a real interesting day. Hope yours is that simple.
