I'm working on a 460 that seams to have no governer response at all. At just over an idle it will also slowly increase rpms on its own
. Not sure what to do to fix these problems, anyone have any suggestions?

Make sure the controls from the hand lever to the governor arm are pushing and pulling correctly and with very little wear on the pivot points. The lever should move full stroke on the governor. If the linkage is good, then check the link from the governor to the carb. it should not bind or have slop or connector looseness. Next make sure the throttle plate is not binding in the throttle bore. (sometimes the screws get loose and the throttle plate can bind preventing motion, or preventing idling. (carb must come off if the lever does not move through its full range. Jim

Check air breather to see if it is plugged.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
