Default Field-Brundage Cam Stopper

Is there anyone that could post a picture of the front of a Field-Brundage Cam Stopper showing the advance lever and ignitor lock out mechanism. I'm trying to recreate these items. Thanks for any help and Thank You Harry for this wealth of information at our finger tips! Wayne

John Davidson, Bristol, WI, has one of these and keeps it at the Baraboo Show grounds. John has EVERYTHING!!! He took me "behind the ropes" so I could REALLY see just what goes on with this cam stopper business. This is one you don't walk away from when it's running I was told. I'll let John explain it as I'm sure he'll see this post and I THINK he'll help you Wayne!!! Something about some tiny pin in the governor that can fall out and let the engine go wild!!
YIKES!!!

Since Craig brought up John's Engine...I don't think John will mind me posting the pictures here.

Wayne Thackery; Did you get enough information that wanted looking at the pictures Steve Barr took of my 35 at Baraboo? What size engine do you have and does it have a ignitor or a Webster? If you need more, I can give you picture out of a FB catalog. I keep a roster on FB and would like info as to sn, HP, SS, camstopper or single valve and cooling.

As to what Craig was refering to as "running wild". There is a little coil spring under movable arm that controls the firing sequence. If this spring breaks/falls out, the engine keep hitting. I had this happen once to my 8 HP but I was near to it and caught it in time. I was glad to find this out for future reference.

Thanks to ever one that has answered my post and THANK YOU Harry for providing this wonderful site! The engine I have is a cam stopper, is ignitor fired and is different than John & Craig's as it has a ratchet on the end of the cam that I assume locks out the ignitor if it kicks back. Would really like to see pictures of how all this goes together! Again, thanks for all the help and John will you contact me off list. I would like get pictures from you if possibe.
