Govenor is surging on 656 ih

Charlie Have a 656 gas IH. Will not idle. I have rebuilt the govenor, cleaned gas tank, adjusted rods of gov. according to specs, rebuilt carb, did points condensor, plugs, still the beast surges and has no power. Will not pull a load or move. kills right out. No vaccum leaks. Gov. repair was $300.
all new parts.

Ed S Sounds like it's sucking air at one of the gaskets,either the one where the carb mounts to the manifold or where the manifold mounts to the head.You could also have a crack in the manifold itself,or the carb might need adjusted.
Charlie Tried checking for leaks with a carb. spray and engine never peaked up. Went and checked a couple of others at a lot and the gov. arm seems to be setting wrong, its like it is not opening all the way. It never touches the stop screw for a high speed.

Thanks for the help it is all very much appreciated. if you think of any other ideas let me know. I haven't even got to play with this tractor yet.


Jeff Boyce You may already know this so don't be offended if so. My manual states that there is a screw on the rear of the gov. Adjust the carb, then back this screw out until the engine begins to surge and sputter, then screw it in just enough that the engine smooths out.
