I recently acquired the pictured 16hp Stover, which I plan to use in my sugarcane mill.

Some parts are missing, mainly the governor. I am looking for a source of parts and any manufacturer documentation. I have sent an email query to Joe Maurer at the Stover Registry and am awaiting his response.

Any help or guidance you can offer will be much appreciated.
