This is a very hard to find original Waters 1 1/2 inch governor. These were commonly used on steam engines as well as a few gas engines. It was made by the Waters Governor Company in Boston, Mass. And is in excellent used condition with no cracks, breaks, or repairs of any kind. Everything seems to move as it should. It stands about 18 inches tall overall. It has 1 1/2 inch pipe threads which are good as they have pipe nipples in them yet. I would say that with just a little cleaning and the addition of a drive pulley of your choice it would be ready to be used on an engine or put on the shelf for a spare. These original Waters governors are extremely tough to find in the wild or even at swap meets and they usually need a complete rebuild. This one only needs some minor attention and it should be ready to go. If you’ve been looking for one to complete a project, restoration, or for a scale model don’t miss your chance on this one. The pictures tell the story. You’ll like it. The item “Old 1 1/2 WATERS Steam Engine Tractor Governor Hit Miss Gas Magneto Oiler NICE” is in sale since Wednesday, November 18, 2015.
