  1. A couple things you might check. Take the 2 screws out and turn the breather cover out of the way. With the engine running about half throttle, take a hold of the brass clevis and push down and pull up and see how it responds. Down should lower the speed and up should raise the speed, and you should feel resistance both ways. Then, with the engine stopped, take the pin out of the clevis and move the throttle shaft lever full range,up and down, and it should work freely. It could be that the tang that fits into the carb throttle shaft slot is badly worn or rusted that could cause the symptoms your seeing , also could be rust and dirt inside the throttle shaft tube. I've seen where the tang is rusted to where their is only a thread left. Then take the side cover off and check to see if everything is getting oiled and check for excessive wear. Not very common ,but the spring could be stretched with gaps between the coils. Hope this helps. Thanks Charlieu and Red Turbo. Bob
  2. It will work on the 300 and 350 utility. Would be a little weak for the other Farmalls with IH governors.
  3. Oops, I wrote the number wrong. Should be TG 5190H, same as JimG said. Bob
  4. DMV, I do have the parts list for Thompson Rocket governors, and the number listed for the X-TRA POWER governor is the same as the OP gave 1590H. This was for H-450. I do believe that Thompsons made parts for M&W, at least in the early years. Pete, with all due respect to your years of experience, the International 300 and 350 utilities used lighter weights and lighter springs, running 275 rpm faster than the Farmall version, with the spring looking pretty much like this one. Bob
  5. Except for the color , it looks like the same spring that IH uses in the 300 or 350 utility governor. Bob
  6. I would check carb adjustment and timing as well as a full flow of fuel to the carb. If that doesn't stop the surging , next check that the governor is in sync with the carb by removing the breather cover at the top of the linkage housing.Then remove the 1/4 " bolt that connects the upper ball joint to the throttle shaft lever. Next, with throttle in wide open position, and holding the lever to the top of it's arc of movement, the bolt should just fit through the ball joint into the threaded hole in the lever. Many things can add up to cause surging including wear in all the moving parts. The M&W did use a spring similar to the IH spring. All the bearings are available from your favorite dealer. If none of the above helps, you could try a Century c-175 spring. Let us know how you turn out. Bob
  7. Thanks for the update Scott. Been getting stuff together to take to the Roundup. Looking forward to talking to you again there. Bob
  8. I do work on the M&W's,660. If you do decide you have one you want rebuilt, bring it along. Save shipping one way. I'm hoping to say hi to you as well as many of the Red Power fans on these forums.
  9. dale560, Usually able to ream the old weights for new hardened pins. Also reshape flat spots on the levers and balance. Last time I checked, a new set was right at $600.00, so haven't bought any new ones. Bob
  10. Hi Scott, always good to hear back after someone has installed the governor. Have you had a chance to use the 400 yet? Are you planning to make it to Red Power Roundup this year? I had the opportunity to attend the Iowa Chapter 5, International Harvester Collectors Inc. spring meeting at Manning Iowa. I can say that they are really a well organized outfit and have been putting in a lot of time and energy into this year's RPR. Should be a good show! I plan to be there someplace in the Varied Industries Building. Bob
  11. Hi, I would like to get a copy of the instructions for installing  the HEISLER 9-SPEED kit in an  m also .

    Glad to pay for your time and postage.
