    Would as past

    Is Would the past tense of of Will, how can that be since will is a future auxiliary, how does this work?

    Welcome!
    "would" is also an axillary verb, and sometimes it is the past tense of "will".

    I will go there tomorrow if it doesn't rain too much.
    I would have gone there yesterday, but it rained too much.
