Anyone have a copy of the article from popular mechanics on how to build a governor for your T ?

I want to use this governor on my conversion. The one that was on it was totally hand made out of a spindle.

John,

You probably wouldn't, but it would be a real neat thing to have on a tractor or a stationary power unit.

what was the reasoning to move the driver to the rear? weight ? i see a flat belt pulley, behind trans? hoop over trans ? can you offer photos of operators station, and extended controls ?, looks like someone spent some time on that tractor. no welding?

Your rite, I think more than one person has worked on this. It looks like at one time it had a dump box on it, maybe for rocks. The only welding is the front axle and a crack on the hogs head. The u-joint had two female ends, so you could disconnect the drive and use the pulley to run some kind of equipment.traktraktrak

I bought an ice cutter Dixons used on beebe lake mn to store ice. The motor was good except for one real bad exhaust seat. And I stripped the drive shaft and sold it. Any ways I'm still looking for a good used short block, few other parts. I have questions on metallurgy. To make the spring perches I have to heat them up red hot to form them, do I let them cool or quench them?traktraktrak
