Cropmaster governor help needed

Post by Clarabell » Tue Jan 28, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi all I am bringing a Cropmaster back to running order
Which hasn’t been started in over 30 years so I will need some advice if possible please, I have freed the engine after taking the head off and honing out the rust in the bores cleaned and recon carburettor, changed oil and am now working on the controls at which point I found the governor had been overriden and bodged so had a quick peep at the bobweights by taking the end off and all is in order but the connections to the throttle butterfly and lever and where spring goes is a mystery could anyone send photo of setup please this is a 6volt 1950 model petrol/tvo
