400 Governor lubrication question

The 400 I recently bought will be a fine old tractor once I get the bugs out of what previous owners neglected or cobbled. My governor seems to be well lubed in the lower housing but the upper end with the throttle control connection is not. It looks dry with the pasty sludge that old oil and dirt leave behind. Is this normal? Is there supposed to be oil coming down from the breather tube while in operation? What should I be seeing in there?Thanks !!

If the tube is plugged it will get dry and fail. Clean and blow through it to assure lube mist gets there. Jim

No oil should go through the breather tube. Its pulling oil vapors through it, so that's sufficient to oil the linkages.
