2N - Magneto
New head cylinder/new governor/new carburetor/new plugs/new wires/new magneto good battery

This tractor was given to me in exchange for labor on another job. Previous owner had trouble getting it started and keeping it running. I put the new carb on it, cleaned out the oil bath air cleaner and put a new sediment bowl and fuel delivery tube to car on it. I can get the tractor to fire up fairly easily now, and even idle decently. The engine will rev up plenty high, but when a load is applied it wants to die. The load being anything above 1st gear pulling nothing but it's own weight. I removed the linkage from the governor and ran up down the RPM's and observed some slight movement in the governor as the engine went up and down in rpm.

Not sure where to go. I think the carb is pretty darn close in adjustment, not sure at all about the governor and I didn't put on the new magneto, so not sure if it's in adjustment but haven't played with it because the tractor starts up and runs. I have the FO4 manual, but hoping you all can point me in direction.

I'd sure appreciate any help.
