Title:

I have no throttle control

Text:

so I recently had to replace the governor on my Ford 8N as the housing was badly damaged I purchased an after market one and installed it went on no problems (btw this is a gear driven one not a belt driven). after getting it back together my throttle rod from gov to throt control was short and broke when I tried to adjust. I purchased a replacement and installed no problem bot now for some reason when I start the tractor and I adjust the hand throttle the tractor run either at slightly above idle or wide open with no in between and only having moved throt lever 2-3 notches on quadrant. i would also like to say the tractor ran fine before gov replacement and also runs fine other then lack of throttle control
