Well.. nothing was connected to the steam throttle. There was a lever but it was free of anything. As far as drawings, there are none. I have a feeling that this was an engineers project but there are some things that were mass produced looking at the lettering on the valve chest.
Thanks for the physics lesson K2. Are you saying that the governor was intentionally designed this way? The pot metal support does need a redesign being that it is flimsy but I can deal with that. Make a new one and cast it in bronze.
Yes it is. I am trying to understand this contraption myself. The lever on the bottom barelly moves the center weight by about 3/8. ad frankly I do not understand the function of the lever. I will be redesigning the support for the whole thing because it is cast in pot metal and it is flimsy.
