Player Action in Canadian Gourley Piano

huestis_1725.jpg (43 kb)Hi, folks, Here are photos of a mystery player action in a Canadian Gourley piano.  Does anybody recognize it from the tracker bar, gears, whatever?

I'm really curious about the stack and what kind of valve assembly it has; for example, does the valve box have to be split open for disassembly?

Thanks very much,

Hi Group,  According to the Player Piano Company Player Action Identification, the Gourley (Gourley, Winter & Leeming, Ltd. (Toronto) Canadian piano uses the Standard Action.

I still do not have full access to Foxtail and cannot view the pictures that were sent.  However, the Standard tracker bar is very distinctive.  There are two larger diagonally set holes on both sides of the tracker bar used for tracking.
