The original subject was "Re: TO35 throttlegovernor linkage adjustment".
Governor seems to work ok as far as resistance at higher rpm. At mid range rpm the tractor hunts. It speeds up and slows down over and over again until you are idling.
At any rate, I changed the oil to 15w40 and it smokes so bad you canít really drive it. Oil pressure did not change. Still running 20psi at all rpm ranges. I mean CLOUDS of blue smoke pouring out of the tail pipe. Cylinders are absolutely soaked with oil. Thatís why it has a miss Iím certain. It canít possibly run right with wet oil soaked plugs. Kind of a shame. I donít think the oil problem is going to go away but as I said, you canít use the tractor with that much smoke. Looks like a brush fire. Hahahaha.
Any chance there is some other issue with valves that would cause smoke like that and clear eventually? Everyone swears it never smoked but I think the guy that sold it to my old man knew it and thatís why he dumped it.
