Thanks to some good buddies of mine and a bunch of help, I have a 20 HP Reid back home from Indiana. This Engine spent its entire life in Oil City, PA. and was purchased 2 years ago still in the original power house and went to Indiana. I recently purchased the engine and now it only thumps for fun from time to time. The Flywheels have what I believe to be as casting dates cast into the counter-weights. The left side is dated 10-17-21 and the right side is dated 10-13-21. This engine is unique in that it is totally original with the exception of a replacement cylinder. All of the serial numbers match with the exception of the cylinder. Crank, bedplate, and both flywheels are stamped 13571 Cylinder is stamped 35344. Am I correct in assuming this engine is a 1921 model and spent 84 years pumping oil in oil city, or are those not casting dates. This engine happens to be equiped with a WICO OC mag and runs great. Engine has tons of compression, all original bearings, all original shims (wood for the mains and paper in the rod), and most original paint. It appears that whatever oil company had the engine had painted it silver, but a good carefull cleaning revealed most the original maroon paint. At any rate I tried to get on Bill Tremels site and had no luck as it seems to be down currently. At any rate any information you experts could provide would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Drew
Hopefully the pics come out. Here you go.
