Massey Ferguson MF20? or 135?

What model do we have? I double checked the serial numbers and the (i's) in the number are NOT #1's. at least they look like capital I's.
We are looking for a governor for it as it starts surging and cutting out when it gets hot. We were told by another Massey owner that that was his problem.
Any info and help from you guys would sure be appreciated.

If you scratch down on the oil pan, what color is the bottom layer? If green, TO 35. If silver, mf35/135. If you find yellow, it's an industrial unit. Possibly one of the last of the work bull series.
Regardless, if it's a z134... The gov stuff will work pretty much across the board from any 134. IDT that you have a bad gov tho. My bet is coil or condenser. They will break down when hot and cause all kinds of problems. It could also be mixture. Too lean and the motor will get hotter than norm, causing power issues, and start showing more the hotter it gets.
Pics may help on what it is. If you post some, there are several guys here who play with these. One may be able to figure it out by sight.
I would buy a resistor coil, new point and condenser, new champion plugs (continentals love champions) and try it... It's stuff that probably needs done anyways.
Good luck and
