Pulled the governor back off this afternoon. Pete23 or Gene Bender, you guys were correct. It does have another hole. It is closer to the shaft instead of out on the end of the arm. I am going to move the spring to the other hole and reinstall it. The picture is not the greatest, but you can see the other hole. We will see what happens. Thanks for you help.

I forgot. Are you trying to make it run faster or slower? Remember the spring opens the throttle & the flyweights close it. So figure out what you will change by changing holes.

That wont do it you need a stronger spring like the one for a 240. Moving to the other hole will weaken the wts you need a stronger spring . Does the input shaft have "slop" if it does remove and rebush the housing.

Get a spring for a 504. That will perk things up a little bit!

Gene, yes the shaft had alot of slop in it. If you look at the picture you can see the new bushing. I bored the housing out and went back with bronze machined to fit the shaft.
Also, does anyone have the part number for one of the other springs? I only have a parts book for my Super C. Steiner does not show a spring for the other two mentioned tractors. I use this tractor to pull with so I need to get it up to about 1900 or less RPM. Thanks for your time.

Yes a stiffer spring from a later model tractor should make it possible to turn the speed up. However, you should be able to get 1,800 rpm out of it with the original spring. If you can't, something else is wrong. A stiffer spring is just a Band-Aid to cover the real problem.

The something else that is wrong may be along the lines of what Gene already suggested. You rebushed the input shaft but are you sure you centered it in the original position?

Check that part that the spring is hooked to & make sure it is tight to the shaft. There is a pin holding it on which may be sheared off part way.

Had the exact same problem with a 230. Only ran 1640. The new spring fixed the problem. The new spring was nearly an 1/8 inch and two coils shorter than the spring that was in it. How did your new spring compare with the old. Your new replacement spring may not be the correct one. Mistakes do happen.

Check back at the throttle lever quadrant and make sure you're getting full travel there.

We had a Super C that we couldn't get more than about 1500 RPM out of. Turns out someone had assembled the throttle handle and rod incorrectly, and it was binding before it got to "wide open."
