Default Reid 25HP cracked cylinder

I already posted a want ad. I would like to donate the parts and labor needed to fix a LH Reid 25HP that a club in Michigan has under roof. It has been there for many years and not been run due to a crack in the cylinder that goes into the water jacket in an inaccessible area. I am looking for a replacement cylinder I can prepare and then make the trip up there to remove and replace it. If anyone knows where I might find one, please chime in here. I live in Florida but I have family within 30 minutes of the show grounds in Michigan. Even with a good cylinder it will be cost me a bit to make the trip and bring the required tooling. I have saved some Bessemers before and have owned on Reid so it will be a fun adventure if I can make it happen.

Seen a few 25hp Reids a this scrap yard a year ago. Grafton, WV rrhamcoinc.com Engines were complete. I got a transfer valve off one of them. They will buy and sell anything.
