Not that I really know anything about it, but I wish I could just take the governor right out of my 9N.

I put a new one in a year ago because I couldn't get the tractor to run as fast as it should, and I had tried most everything else. That did seem to get it to run a lot faster, although I've never been sure I got everything adjusted just right. This morning, though, I suddenly found myself with very little power or speed.

In the garage I found that if I disconnect the gov and work the throttle on the carb, I can get it to run as fast as I want. I find that w/ both linkages disconnected from the gov, I cannot move the gov lever using reasonable force. W/ the throttle lever connected, I can move it some but it doesn't seem to do much. Do you have any idea what's going on here?

Okay, it turns out there was a loose cable at the distributor! The hard-to-move governor lever must either be normal (?) or a coincidental issue. Can anybody tell me if my governor levers should be easy to move when disconnected from the carb & throttle lever?

Can't remember about the one connected to carb (outside on gov, closest to engine), but the other arm is only connected to ANYTHING by the throttle rod and the spring between the two arms. If those are removed & stlll binds, then the only thing remaining is the bushing where arm rides on gov housing......no internal connections on this arm.

So the governor arms should swing freely when disconnected from their linkage attachments (at least the one connected to the carb)? Is there something that can cause the bushing to bind them?

I got one in my shop off of an 8n. the short arm moves and the spring moves it back real easy. The long arm moves but it is pretty stiff. On the tractor the short one moves with control handle and the long moves with it to start with and stops moving about half way up. this is with the engine not running.
hope this helps

Mine are both almost impossible to move (on the tractor, with both linkages disconnected). I
wonder if I got a bum governor. Can a bushing be defective and cause such a thing? Or could
something else be causing this?

I think I would take it apart and see what is going on, they are easy to take apart.
