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.
