My name is Mark. Retired this year but have farmed most of my life growing up and part time for about 50 years now. I like the info and help you guys give to us new comers. I have a 1953 cub I have been using for about 4 years on about five acres of garden. This fall I decided to compleatly rebuild it from top to bottom. May have bought some parts from some of you fellows. Got it mostly back together. but I know I need some help seting the Gov. It runs good but when i try to give it throttle it speeds up and almost act like the engine locks up. I can restart and it idels fine. Few bugs to work out hope to make som friends. Thank

G'day to you Mark:
Did you lubricate all the connections etc., from the carb to the governor itself? Is anything binding or sticking? Suggest you spray some penetrating oil into all the joints/connections/linkage assemblies in the governor linkage. See dwg below:

I think the service manual is a good investment. There is a lot of useful information, especially each section has a 'theory of operation' that helps understand how it works. TM has them.http://www.tmtractor.com/new/ma/244fp.htm

I live in Simpsonville, maybe 40 miles from you? I would be happy to help diagnose the issue, and in fact, will be near you this coming Saturday evening, as I have to go to Rock Hill and pick up a Cub Express. If that doesn't work we might could find another time, just let me know.
