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

Governer Speed Change Body Cut In Two
Wilbur cut the governor speed change body in two. He then butt-welded a 1-inch-by-1-inch piece of angle iron (the shaded portion) to the speed change body so he could mount it on the engine frame. He also cut the tail off the speed change lever, then drilled it for a 1/4-inch bolt to use as a spring hookup.
