Bear with me here guys, this might get long winded. I've had a '45 A with a PB for a couple of years and have been pulling it. Everything in the motor is unknown - it always pulls strong at 4600 and 5100, I've won something everytime out. It's very hard to find a happy throttle position between idle and running wide open. In fact it's never wanted to low idle well. A couple of months ago I bought a '51 A, the tractor is stock with the exception of a big nut carb. This tractor runs like it should, it will low idle all day, set the throttle and forget it, low RPM. So I swapped the big nut carb to the old tractor with a PB, at the same time I swapped to a dry air filter and G intake tube. It runs great, the problem is that any throttle movement and the engine just runs away. I definitely exacerbated the situation. I don't have a tach so I can't tell the RPM but it definitely feels like more than 1080.
As an aside, it doesn't necessarily like to rev under load, it's just a neutral/putting around thing.
Any thoughts? Thanks

if the length of the throttle linkage between the govenor arm and the carburator is not exactly correct the govener is rendered practically useless. It sounds as if you know for sure your govenor is working. If so its most likely only a linkage issue due to the pb and possible an aftermarket manifold changing the distance between the carburator and the govenor arm from its factory length. Check your IT manual for a clear explanation.

With the throttle lever all the way forward and the butterfly in the carb all the way open. Your throttle rod should be a quarter of a hole, roughly, too short. Shorten rod to make the governor more sensitive and lengthen it to calm it down. It takes a little fine tuning to get it perfect but its not too bad to do.
If that doesnt solve your problem, you'll have to pull the gov shaft out and inspect weight pin holes, weight pins, the throw out arm, the throw out bearing, and make sure the throw out bearing sleeve slides freely on the shaft.
Good luck!
