Joel, it is off the governor. I use plumbers putty like you use in strainer baskets in the kitchen sink.

There are five Reids at the show already with more supposed to come. I know by northeast standards that is not very many but we don't have a lot of Reids here in Texas. It should be a great show. Dwayne got his engine running pretty well yesterday, with a little tweaking I think it is going to be a real nice runner.

Here are a few photos of the yellow dog burn at Temple. In number three you can see Ray takin it easy. We had six dogs burning on Ray's trailer and about 8 more on the bed of JR Smith's 1953 Autocar. This was at two different locations on the grounds and I will try to get more organized for next years show.

Rod, I only counted 3 Atlas/Krueger-Atlas engines there. There was a nice 6hp throttle goverend a 6hp hit n miss and an upright King Bee.

There were 5 Reids plus the club's 40hp late model type C engine. I was too busy having fun to take very many photos. This is probably the best time I have had at an engine show in the last ten years. It was that good.

dang, I new i forgot something. No Maytag photos or videos.

I do have a funny though. Not to embarrass Ray, but to set the story up. Ray's Reid on hot tube refused to run. It would pop but not go the second time. He fiddled with most of Friday afternoon and never got it running. Saturday he and Steve cranked on it a while then finally there were four of us pulling on the wheels. Ray and Steve were up front and Bryan and I were on the back. We rolled and pulled for a while until we were all give out. The engine would pop and promise but never did crank. We were standing at the end of the trailer when someone said a cold beer would be good right now so walked over to my cooler and got four silver bullets out that were ice cold. We popped the tops and were enjoying the moment when Steve said "I think there is a rule about not drinking beer around running engines". I was gonna say rules were made to be broken but Ray looked up and said "this engine isn't running. We all laughed and had a really good time. I'm sure Ray's engine cranked and ran fine as soon as he got it home.
