Default My 30 HP Reid

A buddy of mine made this for me. He is a little under the weather and mis-named it as a REED. However hope you like it.

What kind of Ignition do you have on that Reid.. And where do you have it timed... I have an 8hp Long Shaft running on a Buzz coil but I have it timed about 5 degrees before top dead center.. I think I need to retard the timing to get it to run slower..

Randy, my mag died and I had to put a buzz coil to make it run for the show. I may just keep it on because it runs so good. It is timed about 15 deg.after TDC. Thanks for looking.


Ray, come on over and we will fire her up.
