Default 2hp IHC Famous Speed Lever?

Hello Everyone! Iím in need of some help with my 1914 2hp IHC Famous Pump Engine. I purchased this engine a few weeks ago and the previous owner said if you find any missing parts come back and you can dig through the shop to try to find them. Iíve found almost everything except for what I believe is the speed control lever that would be on the governor side of the engine. The bracket is still on the engine just not the lever or whatever else should be there. The problem is I have no idea what im looking for. If anyone could tell me what Iím looking for or even better show me some close up pictures I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Adam

Hey Adam,

I assume you are talking about a vertical Famous, either way if you watch this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrrTyjQ8uUg i'm sure you will see a good look round the part your after.

Enginekid be reminded that not all vertical Famous engines had the speed change option. My 1909 Pumper does not have but my 1909 standard does have speed changer. Hope this helps.
