Im new to the forum, and I just picked up my first tractor. Its a 74 LGT 145, thats a little rough around the edges. Picked it up with a 42" mower and a 4' plow. From what I can tell everything is working (except lights). When I picked it up it did not run. New plug, some electrical repair and a ignition coil, cleaned and gapped the points properly, and I was back in business! She smokes lightly, but the seller included a full rebuild kit with it, that I plan on taking on this spring between plowing season.
It was missing the mule drive to run the mower, but one is en route as we speak! I am however having a issue. When I picked it up, it had lots of stuff undone (electrical, throttle, etc...) Since then I have fixed many of these things, except the throttle. I cannot for the life of me figure out whats going on (I feel I may be missing some parts...)
Could someone share a picture of the carb/throttle assembly? I have the linkage from the lever at the controls, and an arm off the carb. That is it. No springs, no way to hook the throttle linkage to the arm, nothing. Im sure I could rig this right and have it going in no time if I could just get a picture.
Also I have a question about a governor on this machine. I can work the throttle right off the carb as of now, but I can rev the motor seemingly untill it blows. Is my missing throttle gear also part of a missing gov.?
On to some pics... I picked this up for under $500 on craigslist, and think I got a decent deal.
