Can you ID the flyweight governor in the pic below? 
Hint:  The manufacturer was from Iowa....which narrows the list of companies down to around 10 or so.

Hi Mike,
I was wondering if you have more photos of the governor? It looks like it has three balls in the photo so that it would be a three blade with a variable pitch?   Also was wondering if it could be for a steam engine governor.

It's definitely a wind gen governor and it varied the pitch of 3 blades.  They're also coupled to a single spring to avoid a mismatch in blade pitch.  I'll include a few more pics.

I'd say close enough be declared a winner.  These parts came from a Nelson. The Nelson Mfg Co, Spencer, IA was bought by Jacobs in 1942 and renamed Allied.  I've been told that Jacobs thought the Nelson governor mechanism was junk.  Compared to his flyweight governor he was probably right.
