Default Hercules Speed Control Lever

Working on a 1-3/4S Herc and finally found a govenor assembly for it, which was basicly all I lacked. The speed control lever is missing. I've been told these are being re-produced. Any idea on who has them?

Pat

I made one for my Economy 1-3/4 Hp S engine. I had to drill a hole in the top end of the original and found it was to hard for the drill bit. Still have the original but not for sale. Want to keep it with the engine.

I can go out and get a photo and a few measurements if you like.

Jim

Mark Meincke had them. He no longer has a business card ad here & his website does not work?
Hit & Miss Enterprises has some of the parts but I don't think the casting.
