Default Project Thread: 20HP Reid Engine

This spring I picked up what I thought was a innocent, unique engine from western PA. The 4HP Myrick project was my introduction to hot tube engines. I guess, you could say after I got it running on Labor Day, I needed a new project and had eyes on a big engine.

Flash forward to Saturday and my first visit to the Coolspring show. Woke my little dude up at 4AM and headed west. He approved and I guess you could say I got a "little" something to feed the addiction. Mostly all there, just missing a bearing cap. We welcomed home the 20HP Reid project, much to the head shake of my wife as I pulled into the driveway.

I'll try to keep this thread updated along the way as I am sure I may have a question here and there. Just like my first hot tube engine, this is definitely my first with something of this magnitude. Cant wait to get it going but it will take me some time. You can see the wagon running gear I plan on mounting it on in the back ground. So, follow along, offer suggestions, whatever you choose. Hopefully this is a fun ride.
