I have a 1941 VC with the MS TSX43 carburetor. It appears that the rod from the governor should fasten to the throttle shaft but the linkage on the end of the shaft does not have any means of accomodating said rod. What can I do to fix this; it's all I need to get the tractor running?

The throttle rod and governor rod hook together at the carburetor arm. One rod has a 90 degree bend at the end. This goes through the other rod and is them held in the throttle arm with a cotter key... Gene

Both of my rods have 90 degree bends. When I got the tractor, the governor wasn't even hooked up and uyesterday, I found that half of it was missing when I went to replace the broken housing. Luckily, I have another governor and housing, but evidently one of my rods is incorrect as ther is no way one will go through the other.
Thanks for the info.

There should be a hollow tube containing the governor spring that is connected to the hand and foot throttle arm. The front end of this will be crimped flat with a hole drilled in it for the bent rod from the governor. This spring is necessary for the governor to function. Seems it has been removed and replaced with a solid rod?... Gene
