Note: Lever set (not settable by key), key and stem
wind, stem at 3. Lever operates by sliding
sidways, not by pulling out.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report and images. That appears to be Abbott's stem attachment which was sold as an after-market solution (not factory-installed). Let me know if you are able to verify that. Thanks!
