I used a mounten bike cable and handle I cut some of the handle bar off and bolted it to the frame then I took the cable and hooked it up to the govener. Make sure you have a good spring pulling it back or it will sit there and rev to high. I dont use the govenering setup it is to slow not had a problem yet. will post video on my youtube when I get some time but I have been in a crunch this week. Hope that helps.

You have any spare tractor parts around? I did a gas pedal on my mod MTD for practically nothing - used the clutch pedal assembly off my wheelhorse ( it doesnt need it) , couple springs, couple brackets i had, some bolts and bicycle derailer cables.





My mod tractors all use the governer, first i dont want to wreck a perfectly good motor and second if over revved the flywheel would explode .

I pushed my mod murray to around 35-40mph - it was too unstable to attempt any faster speeds( it wouldve went faster)- it was nearly all stock and i used the governer.

I know it's kind of off subject but what did you do to your tractor for it to reach those speeds and still use the governor?

Here's mine. I took a bike seat stem And using one of the Honda 250 handlebar clamps, I clamped the stem, and screwed the clamp to the frame. I then clamped the bike hand brake onto the stem. Reusing the deck engage linkage, a spring, and some custom fab work, attached it to the governor. To grip the lever better, I slipped a bike pedal on the handle.

LOL! When I had gotten the spindle out the pedal, I began wondering how I would put the thing on. I got fiddling with it and, what do ya know, It stuck on it without any modification. Now my cowboy boots won't slip off. Cool

Bandit1: the murray had a 18HP twin opposed on it and a 6 speed trans along with a 6" motor and 4" trans pulley and 8" wheels all around.

Heres how i did the throttle with the governer on the twin:


Another thing that made the murray hard to handle was i used a ATV brake handle for a throttle on the steering wheel as a first attempt at building one - not good for driving and trying to steer and shift all at once. And it had no brakes - another challange....

The smaller motors i tried would barely hit 15 mph- figured with a whole lot bigger motor it would move lots faster..... the MTD could barely get out of its own way - BUT after looking in my MTD owners manual from my 92 white, adjusting the speed control rod wouldve propelled it a bit faster - the PO on my 91 stock mower tweeked it, thing goes fast in 7th. Dont have my MTD together anymore tho......

You could do like this guy did - http://www.atltf.com/t1390-craftsman-off-roader-gas-pedal

We custom fabbed ours so not sure how we would mount the bike handle type.
