    Hello everyone,

    I have a 1910/12 Wolseley style 1 5hp engine which I have managed to get running which was last run 60 or 70 years ago but I have a problem with the governors which are hit and miss operating on the inlet valve which should be closed on the miss part of the cycle. The problem I have is that the valve is operating on the atmospheric principle when it should be closed thereby overriding the governor and allowing the engine to overspeed. To get the governor to operate correctly I am considering fitting a stronger spring on the inlet valve. Can anyone advise me if this is the best way to go or suggest an alternative solution.

    Any help or advice gratefully accepted.

    Ted Scott.
