Great Model Governor; and price
« on: June 16, 2019, 02:14:18 AM »
https://www.ebay.com/itm/183796665198     These are wonderful governors. I consider them to be a kit; I drilled out the steam ports, installed a larger diameter bronze seat to regulate steam discharge. I carefully cut away the original spring and installed one that was more relaxed. The upper and lower governor are connected by 4 screws and fit 4 different rotations to allow steam inlet any direction. Banggood sells them also. You can get them direct from Microcysm at a much higher price. When I say a kit, there were many trials and errors before I finally got it acceptable and running as a true governor. It installed nicely ontop the steam chest of my Stuart #9 and works great. I plan to fit one on a Stuart #1 when I complete it and have every reason to believe that I will do even a better rebuild for it.

        I'm just wondering what size wrench those bolts take & where you find one. If need be I guess I could make one~
