Been 100deg.+ in the workshop! I am getting all the studs made for five engines now. Hopefully the temp will subside and progress will resume!

Looks like your whiskers blew off on that bike John!!

I haven't made any progress working on engines due to the heat either. It gets comfortable in the garage right around bedtime.

John, Do you know if the 4,6 & 8hp reids share the same size and configuration main & mixer valves ? Be sure to bring plenty of Reid & Pattin parts to Portland.
