  • Length of rod between carb and governor
  • Looking for the length of the rod between the carb and governor and it it's a straight rod. Carb's been rebuilt, new governor from Just8N's (one on it had rusty balls and was in such bad shape I bought new), tractor runs, but doesn't have response on the last 3/4 of throttle movement. Following shop manual to bend the linkage down to the governor, but before I do, I want to make sure the rod to the carb is the correct length. I found it very bent after purchasing the tractor and on closer inspection it had been broke at some point and brazen together. I straightened it and threaded both ends which I connected with a coupler and lock nuts. I have the ability to adjust it about 3/4". Tractors working so I'm happy. RPM is slightly low I think, but I'm ok with that. Not trying to make it a screamer and shorten it's life, just wanting to get good throttle response over the full range.

  • The actual exposed rod between the fittings on my 8N is 5-1/4". That is to the lock nut that is on the governor end of the rod. Does not include the lock nut width.
    The Center to center of the pivots is right at 7 inches. Hope this helps.
