The original one should have the bottom connection from the governor to the carb through the tube.

At some point in the past, your tractor has been given some of the
w series updates. That's why the expansion tank has been moved to the front as well. These were considered a dealer upgrade and as such are correct for these tractors so as long as they work correctly I wouldn't worry. Those light weight governors rely on their own oil reservoir and as such it needs to get refilled often as it doesn't get any benefit from the crank case. People often don't think of it and as a result those governors don't last, that's the reason they get replaced.

I see you asked about fenders in an early post, we should be able to help with new fenders. We also repair fenders, but only in the summer (slow time). We run ads in the classified section with pictures of some of the fenders we make, has our phone number and email. Nice to see another old tractor come to life.

Bob.

Thanks Mr. Wurth for that info. The tank will be fine where it is, but I would like to get the correct governor so I can get a tube for the throttle shaft and make it all look good. I knew that few parts would interchange from the W .

Great pictures Torben. Those will be helpful, thanks. I talked with a gentleman who may be able to help me with a governor and maybe a new cast exhaust elbow. I will see if I hear of any of the parts you need as I search for mine. If you need pictures of anything from mine,please specify what and I will try to help. I have not been spending much time on the Rumely as I just finished up on the John Deere L. Now I can really start to tear into it and see what kind of shape the inside is in. Guess my next parts to look for is the throttle tube and a belt pulley cover. Chris.

Took the radiator off today as well as the cooling pipes, exhaust pipes,water tank and lines to the tanks. The radiator is very greasy and will be hard to clean without taking apart, or should I do that? I know you can get the gaskets but is very difficult to assemble correctly. The fuel and water tanks look good but the water tank neck will need to be repaired, and exhaust stack needs work. A very nice man, Ed from Canada, was very helpful by selling me a recast model W intake pipe that will have to be machined some to work on mine. Also the stack and cap came from him. Can someone tell me what the small foot pedal in the picture is for?

The pedal is a differential lock.
When engaged the rear axle is locked up so both wheels pull.
They work fine when locking in.........but I've heard from more than one about it not disengaging and the driver having to drive in circles until it decided to unlock.......

Sounds like what my Massey 235 does sometimes after you want the diff. lock to release, it wont unless you clutch it and turn it somewhat. Thanks Craig.

I would take the rad apart, it is the only way to properly clean (flush) and test it.

Each section needs to be cleaned then flushed and pressure tested (2-3 PSI max). Solder each leak and re-test.

Yes the gasket thickness is important. You will need help putting it back together and getting it setup correctly and square.

Hey Bubbles, can you tell me what kind of solder to use? Probably not going to work on the radiator right now, but want to have it on hand when I`m ready. I did more dismantling tonight and forgot to drain the engine block of the cooling oil, so when I took the head off I had a nice mess! Lucky I keep sawdust for my goat bedding and used that to sop it up. The cylinders don`t look real bad but do have a little top ridge. That was real interesting to see how the pumping system on the carburetor works. The rocker arms and pumps are wore out and need replaced. I see what you mean about what a bear the fuel tank can be to remove. Had to remove the steering arm, jack up the front end and go through the bottom. It has a couple dents in it but not bad. I am going to remove as much as I can from the engine to make it lighter and easier to pull. Somewhere on a thread I saw where someone made a heavy duty puller for the flywheel so I will try to find it. Yes, I know to leave the nut on a few threads when attempting to pull it. Don`t need it busted! Is the flywheel nut supposed to be cut like that or was that done by someone?

The nut on the flywheel could be original like that it is done to act as a thread lock when the split is closed up with a hammer as it appears to be it binds the thread and helps keep it from undoing. My flywheel did not take much to move, just undid the nut (after wedging the split straight) a couple of turns then bolted a heavy bar across the nut picking up on the two cast holes, tighten the two bolts then a heavy blow with a large (14lb) hammer and off the taper it came Norm

That nut shouldn't be battered over with a hammer, it should have a bolt or screw in it parallel with the shaft to spring that thin bit to cause it to bind the threads. Actually it's a pretty good setup.

Sounds pretty simple Norm, thanks. Probably have to take the wheel off to remove it, don`t you?

Use bar solder 50/50 is fine but it could be higher grade. Use Muriatic Acid to etch/ clean the areas (do the soldering outside due to the fumes from the acid). It takes a lot of patience, use a large industrial electric soldering iron not a torch.

The nut is original, it is split to lock it into place. There is a set screw to wedge it.

When you are pulling the flywheel off it will really pop (sound) when it lets go.

When you get ready to pop the flywheel leave the nut on the end of the crankshaft........you need only unscrew it a couple turns.
I used a 1" thick plate and a pair of 1" threaded rods using the two holes in the flywheel.
I tightened them nearly as much as I could and gave the crankshaft a helluva wallop at which it did, indeed, let loose with a bang.
Regarding soldering I would, and have, cleaned suspect area with a brass wire wheel, used Johnson's Soldering Fluid (the best stuff I ever discovered) which is alcohol based along with 50/50 solder.
4 steel discs, some red rubber gasket material, some clamps, an air hose nipple, soapy water in a spray bottle and a regulated air source will make a good leak tester.
Heed Bubble's advise about the 2-3 pounds pressure.
Remember that 2-3 pounds per square inch results in a great deal of force inside the panels.......

One flywheel removed! Not to difficult of a job. I used a big 1 and 1/2 inch impact with a 2 and 7/8 inch socket and it spun that nut with ease. Left it on a few threads, then took a piece of U channel, drilled some holes in it and used 7/8 all thread to go through the flywheel, put some good pressure on it, then gave it three hits with a 10lb. sledge and it broke loose without much noise at all. Are you supposed to put screws or bolts in the two small holes in the nut as a lock? It has two small holes with a slot between them.

The screw goes in the out side face of the nut and spreads the slot open some.

Ok, so it just puts pressure on the threads to lock the nut. Thanks.

I liked the saw cut / set screw nut idea and did that on my buzz saw after a friend told me of his dad losing an arm when a saw blade came off of his buzz saw.
