I picked this up this week with some parts. Has a 1967 TRA-10D motor. Was not getting spark, but I had a nos condenser and points on hand. Replaced them and it fires right up. But it wants to run wide open. It was missing some springs for the governor, but I had extras and a complete TRA-10D to use to compare. The piece is missing that the idle screw bumps on, but that should not make it run wide open. I can turn the throttle by hand and keep it running in a decent range. Soon as I let go, it goes back to running wide open. Any ideas?

Good looking machine. At a glance, it looks like it has BIG front tires

in the 3rd picture. Kind of a cool look.

Sorry, can't help with that rev problem.

If there is no pull on the governor arm from the throttle cable, and the governor rod is connected to the carb, then either someone has messed with the governor adjustment, or the governor is shot inside the engine.

  Great looking D4-10!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug I was lucky enough to find this one with in 3 hours of my house. They seem to come out of the woods, especially since a lot of people see I am collecting them.
Kinda like how all the Electra Tracs seem to find you! Wish I had you skills, I need to tinker with my E-15 this winter and get it going!

Not having worked on a TRA Wisconsin, I don't know much.  But I do see the parts diagrams where it shows that the governor arm is clamped to the shaft by a screw.  If that was worked loose, it would throw the governor off.  I've seen it happen on a Kohler before.

Yep that happens to Wisconsin engines to.

 

Set your throttle lever to the Idle position and loosen the cable tie so that you can set the throttle cable.I've had more than a few that just needed the throttle cable set so there is no tension on the governer.That should alow it to idle down.

 

Here's how to reset the governer.

I don't think it's luck that he finds them....he works like a dog on a hunt to dig them up!  Good work Scott!  How many of those Hogs can you pile on a trailer to take to a Bush Hog reunion?  :D

Well I reset the governor and loosened the throttle cable- cranks ever time, but still wants to go to wide open:-(

So any chance it's the carburetor? Or do I have to pull the motor and the rear plate off the motor and check the governor?
Really not looking forward to that.

If you set the governor correct, and there is nothing from a throttle cable pulling on it, then sorry, it's governor rebuild time.  :(
