  • Installed after market governor and now from idle to full speed (2200 rpm) is happening in the first 4 notches of the quadrant. Why?

  • I forgot to ask in my post below but what happened to your old governor? Do you still have it? There are rebuild kits available. LINK is below. never assume any new, aftermarket component is preset at the factory in Cheena -they never are. Most are clones of clones and no QC Department exists. None are licensed by FORD and have access to any OEM blueprints thus they end up making junk. Leaking can be fixed with a new gasket included in the rebuild kit and do not overtighten the aluminum (8N)housing. Early 9N's were cast iron so no danger of warping the housing. Manuals have oil line passages and how to adjust linkages.

  • Ron-
    Do you have a 9N/2N (3-arm) style governor or the 8N (2-arm) style? The early 9N governor did not have an oil lube elbow on it. It was added on 1943 and all units thereafter. Service dealers were instructed to add the elbow and lube line if brought in for repair. Do you have the governor repair manual -see LINK from our MANUALS forum. Do you have your ESSENTIAL MANUALS? No? Here's a few pages from the CLYMER/I&T FO-4 Service Manual on the governor.

  • Internally broken? "aftermarket" ? Made where? Yeah. I thought so. Quite possible a magnet inside is not in proper position. If new, the glue did not hold, if old, it broke free. Been doing this how long?

  • Bruce-
    The governor is a mechanical device, not electrical. Explain where the magnets go. Get out your MPC's and run thru the parts list.

  • I did not know 8N governor's contained magnets. Please educate me on this. SoS
