Throttle Governor to Hit-And-Miss Engine

Ingenious restorer transforms a throttle-governed 1917 6 HP Ingeco Type W into a hit-and-miss beauty

Make the Engine Run Better
To help the engine run better, Wilbur drilled and tapped the end of the mixer to 1/8-inch fine thread, then screwed a 1-inch long 1/8-inch bolt drilled through hollow so that fuel passes through to the mixer end (needle and seat are shown in cut-away; bolt at far left). This projects the fuel closer to the intake port; the engine pulls fuel better and runs better.
