Possibly, it was used on a steam traction engine.

Most likely a Steam engine. What size is it and is it complete. Maybe I can tell you more... Ken

Most people do not know is that Pickering also made governors for threshing machine feeders. Need picture identify properly.

Kevin....everyone was saying steam...without a picture of course...I think you are right. I'll get a picture on Wednesday. This thing is gear driven...there is no steam line inlet...

If it has a bevel gear drive and no steam valve its probably off a threshing machine feeder .Brian

Incidentally, be careful about that being 40 stuff. I am about a year on farther and have this uncanny ability to recognize junk that old timers have a problem with. . Sometimes I scare myself.......

Pickering also made governors for gas tractors also but a lot of these are enclosed in a cast iron housing. I had two 22-36 IH tractors with them.
