Smile 20 HP Reid Engine

Does anyone know what a 20 hp. Reid Oil Field engine weighs? Is there a list of serial numbers to identify the year they were built? What does the orginal cooling tank look like?

Thank you for any information to the above.

The original cooling tank could have been most anything or nothing at all! If there was an adequate water supply nearby they could have just run flowing water thru the engine, perhaps with the aid of a pump. It could have been a wood or steel tank outside the building plumbed up to thermosyphon or percolate thru the engine or pushed with a pump.
The worst case scenario was utilizing the brine from the well and letting it flow thru before being discharged- this led to a lot of crusting in the water jacket. I have removed a few that were connected up to a radiator and the water was circulated much like in an automobile. Bill Klein
