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.
Sorry, I do not, but I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Why would I want a governor on my Model T?
There were several.
Here is one.
I see, thanks. I hate to give up the generator, but its not needed anyways, I can run on mag. With the governor that's on it I cant put a hood on. Thanks for the add.
I'm going to take this tractor to the gear head get together in maple lake next Saturday. hope to see some of you there
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.
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?
