I can't seem to get the governor adjusted properly on my 1946 JD LA. Any help and a printout of it would be greatly appreciated. Pics are always good too.

I had a bind in the brass piece on the throttle rod cuz it was on backwards. I did it not knowing how it was supposed to go. Live and learn. The governor is back in office now working again

Depending on how i hook up the linkage to the carb throttle it either just idles or it runs almost wide open. I can't seem to find an happy medium

I would check and see that them two arms on the governor move by them selves. With the motor off pull the throttle rod back and see if the one to the carb is free and move back and forth. If not them to are stuck together and need to be free. The one arm with the cable to it pull against that spring and the other runs with the governor to make it run at a set rpm. If them to are loose then when the motor running and you push the carb open some there should be pressure on the arm pushing it back to idle. If there is to much play in that rod to the carb from the governor the motor will run fast so you need to adjust that rod so there good pressure pushing the rod to the carb back when running . What I like to do on them is I have the linkage loose on there with the cotter pin out and adjust the rod to put pressure from the governor to the carb with the motor running at idle. Let us know what you find out.

I just looked at the one in the shed and it is hooked up the same as your. What is yours doing. Runs to fast or will not run up on rpms.

I don't think my la has that flat piece of flat with the bolt in it in the middle of the arm and cable holder. I'm thinking the arm looks like it would hit it an not let it throttLe up. On the LA u pull back on the thottle rod for faster engine rpms. Let us know more an we will get you going .

What is the tractor doing now,is it up an running. The cable on them runs to the bottom of the governor to a spring. Then the little rod is on top of the governor to the carb. The top rod should be pushing the carb back so it idles. If not u need to adjust it so it does when the tractor is running. If it is running to fast turn the carb screw on the stop of the carb butterfly. If it's still runs fast then the carb shafts are sucking in air and need fixing. I would post some pictures when I can figure on how to do it.
