Default Sears Economy 1922 Model F Hercules Start Up and Slow Run

I found some time over the weekend to do a bit of de-greasing and some fine tuning one of the engines we've had for better than a year now. Mechanically, not too much was needed in this case; a move the cam a tooth, retard the ignition timing so as not to hit as hard and quick replacement of the governor spring got her running reliably at a nice show speed.
