I'm wondering how to measure the engine RPM so I can verify the governor high RPM adjustment. This is on a H with a magneto. Do I need any special equipment? And Yes I have some manuals on order if the ever get here.

If you have access to a mechanical tachometer, you can go to the belt pulley flange or PTO shaft to take a RPM reading. According to my Serviceman's Guide, the engine should run at 1815 RPM, the belt pulley 1121 RPM, and the pto 594 RPM when the engine is at fast idle.(wide open throttle --no load)
The engine runs at 1650 RPM when the throttle is wide open and pulling it's rated load. Idle RPM is 450. Hope this helps.

John I usually just adjust the linkage for wide open. The most I have seen an H put out is around 2,000 RPM.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
