After trying everything else, we found the governor was way out of adjustment on the 445. So we shortened the rod and really improved performance. But a 2-bottom is still all she wants.

What is the best way to adjust the governor properly? Thanks Marty

Unhook the rod from gov to carb. Pull throttle lever to wide open position. Adjust rod so it will go back into carb lever or gov arm which ever you end you removed. Then adjust spring tension to get desired RPM.

Thank you! That seems like a much better way than simply guessing whether to lengthen or shorten it!

I'll let you know how we do!

Marty after reading my post I left out to also hold the carb shaft in wide open position while adjusting rod length.

Following your guidance, she is running better now. Lots more power, but still a little weak. I need to put an accurate tach on it to see what RPM she is set for.

At least I am able to get a little work out of her now!

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention.
