I was looking at another Waterloo walk behind today (go figure).  It has the usual ABN engine on it, but it has this piece I have never seen on any of the other Wisconsin ABNs made for Waterloo.  Is it something that was used on other Wisconsin engines?

Never seen it before. Is the bracket holding the governor spring?

Yes, the other end of the spring connects to the governor arm.

Would that not put the engine at a fixed speed?

The spring seemed to pull the governor/throttle into the closed position.

Looks like some sort of Governor controlled Timing advance.Or maybe it's an Off switch? :rolling:

That's a fixed speed bracket.  I have seen it on a BK/AC but the ABN.  I wonder why that is on a tractor?  The one I had was on a genset. 

 

Did you buy the Waterloo?

It took me a double take to realize it was bolted to the mag mount bolt and not the mag itself.

Thanks, and no, I did not buy this one.  He pulled the old "I have another buyer willing to pay $X."  So I walked away & told him to call me if that deal fell through.
