What is the correct procedure to set carb up on a 39 Farmall M? Does the governor need to be adjusted also? Any and all help is needed. Seem to run good but doesn't seem to have power. Unsure if the governor is opening up. It doesn't seem to.

You may also try the adjusting screw on the bottom of the acrb.This controls your fuel flow.Turn it all the way in then 5 turns out.Probably the gov. though.Replace the spring.Then go from there.

Don't have specific know how on the M but with the engin off and the thottle lever in the open position, the throttle plate in the carb should also be completely open. Any adjustment to accomplish this is a pain in the ass through the outside cover of the governor and the breather access obove the governor. Chances are that that is not the problem, however. Conside the purchase of a new spring to replace the potentially fatigued spring inside the governor case. It is that spring that provides the opening of the throttle plate.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
