Sears Roebuck "Governor Motor Cooler" for Model T Ford motor

$125 - includes shipping and a set of photocopied instructions.

A big Thank you to Donnie Brown for posting the instructions a while back on the forum which enabled me to ID the unit - see this thread:

http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/512917.html?1422241743

Appears to be NOS/un-used. Very good to excellent condition. I have not cleaned this unit - it's just a little dusty/dirty. Refer to photos.

Appears to be 100% complete. Based on the parts list, it is missing the two red fibre "friction washers" (for the manual throttle arm). Easily obtainable red phenolic washers or rubber washers will probably suffice.

Please respond via the private message function by clicking on my name above. Please include your email address so I can reply.

I will not respond to inquiries that I consider spam or scam.

Nice Erik - yours is the only other one of that type I've seen besides the one on a '13 engine that my wife inherited off an old buzz saw.

What was its purpose? As speed decreased fan speed would increase?

Robert:

It's for a Model T Ford motor that is being used as a stationary engine.

Ideally, the governor maintains the rpm regardless of changes in engine load.

The governor controls the carb which in turn regulates the amount of fuel going into the intake.

For example: if the motor starts to slow down due to increased load, to compensate the amount of fuel introduced into the intake automatically increases which minimizes further slowing down of the motor.
