Perhaps I did not make clear that this is not my code - it is the code in summary.lm. I used square brackets to try to make my edited version of the text intelligible - print summary.lm and you will see where my version fits in.

Do you mean w <- z$residuals ?
Type names(z) to see the list of item in your model.
I ran your code on a lm and it work fine.
You don't need the brackets around mss <-

Usually weights in lm are applied to squared residuals, but I see that the weighted mean of the observations is calculated as if the weights are on the original scale:
