IH 184 loboy

My 184 loboy sat up for about 18 mths. so I cleaned & rebuilt the carburetor & also replaced points, condenser, rotor & dist. cap. Finally got it started but RPM would run away; so I disconnected the governor linkage & it idles about as it should.

My question is what could have taken place inside the governor to cause this while it sat up or did I just attach something backwards?? Any help is appreciated.

one thing that can happen is the cotter pin attaching the governor rod to the throttle lever can contact the throttle shaft boss and jamb the throttle if it is too long or bent in the wrong direction. I sincerely doubt anything went wrong with the governor just from sitting 18 months, provided it was working before.

Got it up & running. The spring & associated lever were gummed up pretty good.

Tractor is running fairly smooth & accelerates well. I don't think that it's throttling up all the way though. I don't have a tach so I'm judging by past use & the sound it made.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
