I know this topic has been fairly well covered, but some information conflicts so just to be sure i get it right.
I am referring here to correct setting and subsequent function of the governor on a Wisconsin S8D engine. (800 Tractor)
1) Setting the governor: Governor lever should be all the way back (Wide Open Position), Loosen nut and turn shaft CLOCKWISE until it bottoms out and tighten whilst holding lever in wide open state.
2) Governor spring should have a slight slack while at idle without being loose & touching engine case. Spring in approx third hole from bottom in governor lever.
3) At full throttle should? the governor be trying to close the throttle?
4) Control rod - Currently i need a spring below my control rod. This spring runs from the top 1/2 of the governor lever and is required currently to pull the governor lever CLOCKWISE to return it to idle. Never seen such a spring required in any manual or pic leading me to believe that my set up and adjustment is wrong.
If any experts could confirm (Or correct) my statements above i would be much appreciated. Descriptions on correct adjustment also welcomed as are pictures of the linkage in the idle and wide open positions.
Thanks in advance
