This post is in regard to a post I saw back in 2016. It was regarding someone who was having throttle linkage problems. The symptom was he would open the throttle, and the governor arm which actuates the carb throttle arm would be delayed or seem like it was sticking or didn't have enough spring pressure. The result would be moving the throttle to about the 2/3rds position and then the spring pressure would over come the resistance and the throttle would kick way open, then from there you'd have normal function to top rpm and then normal function all the way back down.

So I know this post is old, and I'm sure you figured the problem out or created a work around. But I ended up having this same problem. I just recently purchased a ford 3000, and was going through it front to back doing all the maintenance that should have been done over the years. Long story short one of the things I did was buy a carb rebuild kit. When I rebuilt the carb it came with a new throttle arm and seal for the throttle arm. It was a nice snug fiction fit which felt fine absolutely fine to me. Well come to find out after I adjusted the linkage per book spec, and crossed all the tees and dotted all the eyes. I cleaned up the spring and throttle arm and well as the governor arm. They were very free moving and the governor arm followed the throttle arm perfectly. Then I connected the governor arm to the carb throttle. Well there it was problem still remained with the thottlenkicking wide open once spring tension was high enough. So I took the carb off, put the old arm back in it which was very free moving. And that was the fix, the spring pressure for the governor arm is ultra sensitive and works only when there is zero resistance in any part of the linkage. Now my throttle moves with the governor and the governor is working properly as well.

Anyway I hope this helps someone down the line here.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
