Ampico Air Motor Tempo Aperture Plate Drawing
By John A. Tuttle

[ Ref. 150826 MMD, Ampico "A" Air Motor Governor Tempo Slide ]

Hi All,  First, thank you to the people who have sent me information
about the Tempo slider.  However, I have four sets of specifications and
all of them are different.  So, if anyone else has access to an original
slider or measurements that they took before making a replacement,
please send them to me.  So that you know what I need to get this part
right, here's a list of the measurements required.

Length - Overall Length of the piece

Width - Overall Width of the piece

Perimeter Hole - Diameter of the holes around the perimeter

Bleed Hole - Diameter of the hole

Space A - The space between the right edge of the bleed hole and the
left edge of the slot

Left Taper Edge - The distance from the left edge of the slot to the
right edge of the piece

Left Taper Width - The width of the large end of the slot

Slot Length - The overall length of the slot from the left edge of the
slot to the right edge of the large hole

Right Taper Width - The width of the slot at its narrowest point near
the large hole

Right Taper Edge - The distance from the narrowest point of the slot to
the right edge of the piece

Large Hole - The diameter of the large hole

Space B - The distance from the right edge of the large hole to the
right edge of the piece

Also, so there's no confusion about what I mean, I'm also sending a
picture that labels the various areas and distances.

Thanks you in advance for any help you can give me.

Musically,
