few other pics. I also see this head is stamped "high compression" which I don't think our other F's had. I'm thinking it had fenders at 1 time?

Is that governor driven off the belt? We bought a unit for ours and it is driven off the timer drive, the same place as the mag is driven. I had thought I could use both the mag and gov on the tractor but ran into the drive issue. I can only use one or the other but not both as they both drive off the timer.

Yes, small pulley rides the belt.
