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.

Replaced some valves and gaskets few weeks back and was able to get the fordson started for a short time today as mom was cooking the Christmas dinner. We believe the tractor didn’t run in at least 10-15yrs. Little more tinkering needed yet. Previous owner installed 40 over pistons and governor pulley rolling on that belt felt like turning over a house trailer but we got it started. :). https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mPl7gQ6YVfg

Did those Fordsons originally come out without a governor, I have always wondered that?
