Old F-20s, for those who ran them

Im restoring a 1932 F-20. It has the old gas lever on the steering post setup. Ive been told that with it, you either had hi or low, but nothing in between. IS that right? I could change it to variable speed easy enough, but hate to change the origionalness of it. I wouldnt, but i intend to farm with it also. Ive had several F-20s, and all of them had variable speed. This is a first with me. Thanks

Farmall, I think you have the nonvariable speed governer on that tractor. The engine is similar to my 10-20 but a half inch less bore. My 1929 10-20 had a worn out variable speed governor on it but I put on a good nonvariable from a 1930 parts tractor I bought. Look at the back of the governer housing towards the mag and see if there is a piece sticking out that you can turn and increase the speed with, it adds a bit of spring pressure to the flyweights. The speed lever you have likely just controls the linkage to the throttle up at the front of the engine. The variable speed was an option as far as I am concerned.
Later Bob
