From the engravings there were apparently two different governors: one spring loaded on the flywheel(s) and one gravity type about center frame. Which one are you doing, Pavel?

 :facepalm2:
I went back and looked at your opening entry and see that you are planning on the flywheel governor.

Hi Pavel,

You're doing a really great job. I was about to ask you what the notch on the top of the main frame was ment for but your drawings provide the answer. The notch is giving clearance for the stuffing box:
