Since getting my 8N haven't had much time to work on it because of the weather, I'm a warm weather worker, but the other day looking at it decided to clean the throttle control, didn't like that eeeee, eeeee everytime you moved it up and down, so got some wd 40 sprayed her all up cleaned all the rust off it and it is now quiet. Started it up everything working good, but just sitting there, throttle up and down, just sitting there full throttle is about half way up, decided to give it a spin down the road, put it in gear and away I went, but noticed that my throttle didn't want to stay up at full throttle, it wanted to work its way down, then a light bulb moment, I freed up the throttle to the point the governor was actually moving the throttle down, I said well isn't that something I should have left it be, just wanted to share that little bit, learning one bolt at a time.

Is your "governor compensating spring" intact and in place? It counteracts the "pull" from the governor lever that ries to move the lever to the "idle" position.

Here is one reason for throttle slippage. You see two throttle plates in the picture. one is very well worn. The ridges that hold the throttle rod are almost flat. The other is a new throttle plate.

The second pic shows the ball in the throttle rod that rides on those ridges. As you can see the ball is worn mostly flat. These worn parts were slipping very bad on my 8N. It wouldn't hold the throttle in position until I replaced with new parts. You can pry the ball out of the throttle rod and replace it with a standard 3/8" ball bearing. Sling shot ammo available in any sporting goods store.

Good photos.
You can also buy individual ball bearings
at most hardware stores - in those boxes
of miscellaneous small parts in the
bolts/screws/fastener section.

What?????? You mean you wouldn't want a life time supply of them for 16 generations of your family?

While you're at the sporting goods store you could also pick up a sling shot to use up that lifetime supply Wink

I see where the spring is located on the throttle linkage but the plate that it attaches to the chassis or engine is missing so back to the workshop.

Look on the other side of your trans. That little plate for the spring was on the opposite side of the trans on my tractor and yes, the spring was attached to it.

I moved it back to the correct side.

Looked on the other side but did not see anything figure they must have cracked it open and did not put
that plate back on, going to have to find a plate or make something else up.
Thanks for the help
