Farmall H Won't idle

My 1952 Farmall H will not idle down, no matter what adjustment I make to the governot, linkage, or carburetor. Runs fine at high speed. Governor is working as the engine will maintain RPMS as the load increases.
Any ideas or suggestions?
I have removed the governor to put new seals in it as they were leaking a tad bit. No noticeable wear on any of the parts.

Loosen the screws on both ends of that tube between the gov. and carb. Then tighten the carb. end first before gov. end.

With the governor arm disconnected from the hand lever linkage (attached to the bracket at the head) running the engine and moving that lever will direct your attention to either the lever linkage from the steering wheel post, or to the governor linkage internal to tha governor and carb connection. If the engine idles correctly with the governor control lever disconnected, and will pickup to full speed when you move it by hand as far as it will go, the problem is in the linkage and pivot bracket. If it still acts funky, it is internal to the gov/carb. Jim
