Honestly I don't even know if I would touch it, you only get that nice old look once.

Just my 2 cents...

Looks like a Handy governor between your carb and manifold.

Some parts are still to be had for those old Hercs. The device you show on the manifold looks to be some sort of rev limiter, does it have a throttle plate in it or has that been removed?. Does the carb have a throttle valve plate in it? Some times they would use a separate throttle valve above the carb to put the tractor in full idle when the motor wasn't equipped with a variable speed governor. In other words the governor only controlled the high RPM, the upper valve would be used to manually control the lower RPMs. As cruddy as that engine looks at the lifter covers you will need to drop the oil pan and clean it up thoroughly and check the bottom end bearings. Be real careful with the mains as they are only centered on the block by the bolts and they are difficult to get centered while tightening. If not right you won't carry oil pressure. We use a liberal coating of grease on the journal when final tightening to center the cap. Then snug the bolts and strike the cap on the top between the bolts a few times to spring it into center. Should do the trick then torque to specs.

The thing is a Hoof Velocity Governor. Used on lot of gasoline powered big trucks in the 40's and 50's. When the air velocity got greater than the set spring tension it would close off and restrict the intake mixture flow.
