I should have known better than to go through this thread. I am getting the spring itch again for engine work. It was right before the end of the fall I got new copper rings in the 20HP Reid and had a nice extended run before hibernation. Ever since its been too cold or too muddy to even think about pulling it out of the winter shed. I would leave some serious ruts pulling it out with the JD 70.

So while not oil field related, but the garage has the 1927 John Deere D sucking up space and resources followed by my newly acquired 17HP Ruston Hornsby to get going, I hope with some nice weather, I can get back to putting the final touches on the Reid. I really should fix/get a new mixer valve setup but right now the manual works fine. Oh yea, and jack stands so the rubber tires don't bounce it to the moon when it gets moving!

I just purchased a 20hp Reid or so I think it is . It has about a 8x8” bore and stroke and 5’ flywheelers it’s missing all the accessories but the major parts are there tags gone too but I found a no stamped in the flywheel 11204 going to be a fun project

Been collecting parts and SLOWLY working on making up a 10hp Jones portable engine. I hope to use it to power my shingle machine. Been having some health problems. Just wonderful how they can slow down fulfilling plans! I've decided to sell my good 25hp Jones. Best to all.-John

Sounds good to me Strikeforce ! How do you like running it on the hot tube? I'm undecided on my Reid.

Hey John ! I bet you didn't find that Reid in Lake Wales Fla. Unless it was from another collector.

Sorry to hear about your health issues John N. How's that Chevrolet doing? You should see Quonset and Davisville now. You would not recognize it at all. All of the military buildings are gone.

Welcome Ifix. I think you will find your Reid with 8" bore is a 15hp.

Hello Peter. A SeaBee buddy of mine and I are planning a trip back to Davisville this spring. We were stationed there as mechanics in A Company in MCB 6 and afterwards MCB71, 50 years ago this year.If you are available, we'll have to meet up for a gab session. My old 22 Chevy is just fine and running well. Won a race with it the other day, that Amish fellow wasn't too happy to lose such a close race. Good old truck. I can't afford a new one!

Thanks W P I have been looking for specs for Reid engines. Previous owner says he has parts for the engine in a box somewhere. I hope when he finds them the tags there.

Hi John: If I am here and free when you and your friend come, I would gladly meet up with you guys. I have a daughter and grandchildren in Kentucky that I visit so there are times that I am not in Rhode Island. Not sure if you remember, but I sold you the spare engine block for your Chevrolet. I had a guy deliver it to Coolspring for you. I retired out of Quonset 5 yrs ago. I worked in the Maintenance Dept. My boss was a former SeaBee and he is currently the curator for the SeaBee Museum.

Check the site I show below John. Find the Reid Type A pdf. Has parts & specs.

Bill Tremmel had info on his site also- he has started posting here again so maybe he will provide you the link. Bill Klein
