Wright Bros shop engine photos wanted


Last Subscription Date
Any one out there have any photos of the Wright Bros shop engine in Greenfield Village at the Henry Ford museum? Looking for details of the governer mechanism which I cannot figure out from the description. I've already made an engine with the crescent flip-flop mechanism...want to include the governer. Also did the piston have a sliding sleeve on the crown? If you look at existing pix there is a long finned cylindrical poking out of the center of the head. A very interesting pice of Charlie Taylor's workmanship to be sure. If you do, PM me.
