They are out there but getting harder to find. This is on a recent one I picked up from a second owner.

I'm not sure if "safety wire" is the right term, but it prevents a Cub owner from adjusting the governor. Adjustments were supposed to only be done by IH mechanics.

Hi,
The wire and seal are on the high speed adjustment bolt, I think so the dealer could see if someone had tampered with the adjustment, when the tractor was brought in for service. :)

Mine was intact on my 1948 until just a few years ago when I had problems with the govenor. I had been told by my dad growing up that the govenor was an IH mechanic only area and was scared when I actually had to pull it off to make repairs.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:
