D17 Help

My D17 governor started acting strange and then I heard a pop and then it knocked in the governor area. I got it home and took the governor apart and found everything is there but there was a piece of metal in the gear. I tested it with a magnet and it is not metallic, so I think it might be a piece of a key or something.....not a gear tooth anyway. Any ideas on what it might be? Should I put it back together and try it? I'm sure the metal in the gear was making the knocking noise.

If you found a foreign object in the govenor housing you had better determine where it came from before you run it again. Key stock is ferrous metal so it would be attracted to a magnet.And not likely a key would come out without something else obvious coming apart first. Piece of aluminum off a casting? Sounds like something is loose in there. Not a lot of clearance inside the govenor housing so you don't want things flying around! We looked for you at Lynden. Kevin said you were there but not wearing what you said you were going to. We were well marked as A-C people. Maybe some other time you make it over here.

Yes I didn't realize it was going to be a lot cooler over there.....wound up with a sweatshirt on til afternoon. Guess I should have chose my cap. The morning flew by......talked to a couple of AC guys and before I knew it the tractor pull started. Then we went out to Kevin's place for awhile and saw his fleet.

I found a piece of lead from a previous governor weight failure that fell out of the D17. Fortunately the timing gears only grabbed a small piece of it.....it is back to running fine.

I have a picture blown up and framed in my "tractor room" of a Farmall M. It was my Grandpa's tractor, of which whom I never got to meet. He froze to death getting this tractor out of the barn to pull a truck out of the ditch before I was born. Anyway my dad and aunt had to sell it at the auction, ... [Read Article]
