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

Lower Part of Speed Change Body
This drawing shows the lower part of the speed change body after cutting. Wilbur butt-welded a 1-1/4-inch piece of 1/8-inch flat stock to it, then drilled a 1/4-inch hole through the center to bolt it to the Ingeco governor bracket. Wilbur suggests welding flat stock to the back side, bridging the splice for strength. Not shown is the detent catch he added to the valve pushrod, located as dictated by the detent blade.
