I found a great riveted water tank for the Reid at Portland swap meet, haven't had a chance to assemble yet.

John, not sure how I missed all of the going on's of this thread but that is an amazing project. As a new owner of a 20HP in parts, that 4HP sure looks like a nice engine to have for shows without having to use all the muscle to move around. Great work!

John, we just got home from the Catoosa show where we ran one of your baby Reids for two days. Those are fantastic engines and a lot of fun to play with. Mike needs to put a cooling tank on the engine. It only holds about 2 gallons of water and we ran it until we started to boil the water and had to let it rest while we played with the oil burner Reid.
