My 3000 is starting to get harder to use for mowing and baling because the throttle won't stay put.

I now find myself needing to hold a hand on the throttle to keep it high enough to maintain 540 RPMs at the PTO. If I let go, it just settles back to about half throttle.

Is there a jam nut under the display panel? Some spring on the carb linkage that I should adjust?

As it is, I can't comfortably get into the old "farmer G-lean" where I put my right hand on the fender and sit a little sideways to easily watch the haybine or the baler.

There is a nut that needs to be tightened, but it's not right under the dash panel... you have to follow the linkage lower, almost
to the transmission housing. You'll find the nut there. Tightening it will put more pressure on the friction disk...assuming that
hasn't disintegrated from age and use. (If so, THAT would be the problem)

You know, I didn't see one...maybe that's the issue. Thanks. It may not be straightforward to replace, but probably not impossible either. A good rainy day, no hay project.

I agree. The friction disk on my tractor is cork so I cut a piece of cork gasket material to replace the worn out one. Now I have trouble moving the throttle lever where I want it but it sure stays where I put it.

Loosen the nut up some to make it easier to move the throttle control.
