    That vid was taken with a 10" tablet. I created a square frame of sorts and attached it to the rear mount of the steering. A large rubber band kept it in the frame will driving. Pic below shows the frame mounted to the tractor. I didnt want to bolt it because I didnt want to have holes there for later. Also if I ever get to realize the hope of getting another tractor I will need the mount for that as well.


    The frame was set so I could twist the frame left or right to center the image. Unfortunately using this mount you can hear all the vibrations that are passed from the tractor to the camera. If you want I could post other pics of the frame for better clarity?

    Wi11y you can post some pictures if you have the time. The tractor ran good best I could tell. I am thinking that tractor is or was yours?

    Right now I am having trouble idling low. Every time I get idle speed low it wants to die.
    Sounds good till then. I am wondering if its the carburetor or the governor not kicking in.
    I may pull the governor gear to make sure it is in correctly, for weights and paddle. Other than not idling at low speeds and maintaining that speed I believe the tractor sounds better than it used to.

    set the throttle where you go for normal run. Take your finger and gently rotate the bell crank that you use to set the idle to higher rpm. If the governor is working you will feel the governor trying to lower the rpm. Easiest way I know of.

    James Howland would know how to set it correctly.

    I do not have a super slow idle yet but is a low idle.

    I got the idle where it is pretty good and the upper range also.
    I have not yet measured actual rpm.
    I may yet do that if I get the right tool.

    There is heavy paint on my carburetor. I could see the 'D' in made. I took that for 'D' in idle. The other letters were open to any interpretation.

    Ready, shoot, aim, shoot again.

    Today I got a magnifier and saw that it was the 'D' in 'made in usa'.
    That was the load screw.
    On the other side was the idle screw.
    That made the adjusting work pretty well. Then I tweaked some from the idle at 1 3/4 and then load at 1 turns out from all the way in.

    I have the DLTX 53 carburetor.

    Governor seems to be working though there is not much of a load till I get it moving to really see it work.

    If I remember correctly and James Howell will have to correct me. Yet the letter series didnt exactly purr on idle. They did tend to miss sometimes and was the reason that the # series (ie the 40, 50, and 60) had a redesigned manifold and carb to try and resolve the ragged idle. Something about on idle one side starved for fuel because of the distance or some such thing.
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.
