VAC Throttle spring

In the photo below, there is a throttle lever that has 3 rods attached to it: 1) goes up to the hand throttle; 2) one that goes to the foot throttle and 3) a rod that goes up to the side of the block and eventually connects to the carburetor. This lever sticks and I have to reach down and push it forward to idle down the tractor. What is the fix for this? Does it need a new spring? Does anyone know the part # for this spring and where I can purchase one?

It is not binding and it is well lubricated. Thanks for the help.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

If my memory is correct I think I had one rubbing on the oil filter and binding up.

Might want to check the foot throttle. Most of the time that is where I find the trouble on these. The cross shaft under the floorboard will get rusty and cause it to bind. If everything else is ok they will work without the spring on the lever. Several of mine don't have it and work fine. I do keep them in stock but at about 40 buck each I don't worry about them if it works without it. As was mentioned earlier check the guide on the side of the block also. If the rod has paint on it that can cause it to bind as well. Lee

On my VAC where the throttle attaches to the side of the engine before going into the governor it will get dirty and sometimes stick. Are you sure it's not sticking there?

John Saeli will fix you up with both information and parts. I imagine when he gets un busy he will see this and respond.

Today's Featured Article - The Mud Daubers and the Old John Deere - by Jon Zehnder. I have a 1941, John Deere Model A tractor I have owned for about a year and a half. This is my first (in case my wife reads this, "FIRST") tractor and it has been a learning experience. After considerable advise and assistance from local tractor nuts and the forums of Yesterday’s Tractors, I had finally got it running pretty well. I have tuned it up, overhauled the carburetor, installed a borrowed, rebuilt magneto, installed a new Power-Trol, patched the radiator, installed new front wheels a ... [Read Article]
