Beside the governor rod there is another short rod that has a spring on it, What is that for?

Used to move the governor spring in or out while the engine is running.

Were you able to get the well also? Nice find! Shouldn't be too much trouble fixing that head. It is a common problem on FM engines.

I looked at my book and anything that I have found online, at this rod, Does it hook to anything, I have the bracket that it slides through but the end that is near the gov assy that comes from the engine is just a blunt end, ?
with the butterfly in any position it will not appear to be able to hold or move Seems that it is going to be about 1 inch too long/

I told you what it was in about two posts ago. The second part of your last question I do not understand. Are you talking about the gov pull rod? If its too long maybe the arm it attaches too at the gov end is not attached in its correct position. ?

I need a photo to see what your talking about.

That's exactly how it is supposed to look (other than the rust etc).

It's purpose is to move the governor spring in and out on it's toothed lever. You hold the knurled end with your fingers and manipulate it to get the end of the rod (it's cupped) over the end of the spring. Then you can move the spring right (faster) or left (slower). You can do this while the engine is running, the little rod (whatever it's name is?) is to keep the flywheel from rubbing your hand.
