This is a newer Reid 15443 it had all brass oiler , no tree on the bearing caps. Had the big ring on the crank and chain oiler in the bedplate. They also dropped the main valve out of it ??? But left the wico & linkage and Reid gas cock.....

It is really amazing what you are pulling out of the woods. Preserving history I suppose. I must admit I am jealous though. There nothing like that around Minnesota that I know of. Keep it up. Maybe one day we see something on engineads

Went on a junk yard run the other day found a rare one. DC&U Tillinghast convertible (Steam or gas). Looks like the cylinder is in fair shape for as old as it is.

Hey Rod - Are you Serious about bringing a trailer over? Don't be leading us on like this... I'll hook up my goose-neck and hit the road!

Besides the trailer, chains and binders - what else does one need to bring along to take say a REID home? I can bring plenty of oil to coax it onto the trailer?

You're waving a steak in front of some hungry folks!

Okay Rod - I figured that just using oil to lure a Reid onto the trailer would probably not be enough incentive for their current owners to let the engine go home with me. And, depending upon the county I was in, it might also get me some free lead for pouring babbit! But how much gr$$n would one need to bring along to convince the current owner of say a 15HP Reid to let the engine go home with me?


Skidmore - Under the advise of my Chief Financial Officer I would be authorized to bring a single engine home for personal use. (Happy Wife / Happy Life you know! ) However, it would be pretty easy to put a second engine on the trailer for someone else back in the MidWest!

Check out this snowy standard rig. The old Derrick is still standing tall with the old engine still in place.

The Wood County Historical Society has a steam powered drilling rig display in our Boom Town oil field display.
www.woodcountyhistory.org

We hope to have the boiler repaired early in 2013 and have it in operation for the June Wood County Heritage Days show.

Can't figure why no one ask to see the engine. Here it is 20 or 22 1/2 Bessemer 68" flywheels. Missing the norm.. connecting rod and bearings, newer engine with the flat the head. But check out the yellow decal B G E Co. Would make a nice show Piece.
