My 9N was not running very fast, and it seemed like it might be because of the governor. So I got a new one, and indeed, my tractor took on a whole new personality. It now runs much faster. However, it doesn't like to slow down--like after I carry a load up a hill, when I go down the other side it revs up quite high. My tachometer is not working, but it seems to go awfully fast. When I plow my hilly driveway I have to constantly work the throttle to go faster and slower.

The linkage all seems to be pretty much in accord with the guidelines in the IT Manual. The governor spring does have a little end-play, which IT says not to have. However, it's tucked back so it seems like it would be awfully difficult to adjust it by bending with pliars, as suggested. So before struggling with this, does anybody know if that particular adjustment would relate to my particular problem? Otherwise it might be good enough, and I should figure out something else to try. If so, any suggestions would be appreciated...

Adjust the spring just like the manual says.

Thank you, Bruce. Do you know any particular way to effectively do this? I thought if I could get a pair of channel-locks around the spring, end-to-end, then squeeze to shorten the ends, that might work. But it's so far back behind stuff that I haven't been able to do that...

If you can't get to it, just take the gov off to bend the spring.

Ok, I removed the governor and adjusted the spring. It didn't really change the way the tractor runs noticeably. Do you suppose it might just be the particular governor that I received? Or does anyone have any further suggestions?
THANK YOU

"Lost motion" in any of the governor linkage will do you in. those parts all have to fir tight especially the spring.

Get out your I&T FO4 manual and lay it on the right running board, open to the 'adjust governor' paragraph.

Follow the instructions, step by step.

Post back w/ more questions or results pls!
