    Steam engine with a Reuleaux triangle instead of an eccentric.

    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.

    Steam engine with a Reuleaux triangle instead of an eccentric.

    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.

    Steam engine with a Reuleaux triangle instead of an eccentric.

    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.

    Steam engine with a Reuleaux triangle instead of an eccentric.

    Picked up this engine over the weekend and after a couple of hours of cleaning and rust removal it looks pretty good. I need all the info I can get on it so please feel free to comment.
