Not a problem Chuck!! The number on mine is pretty visable even from a distance, but when it was rebuilt in '68 it was definitly all sandblasted, I'm sure that is why it is so visable. Have him check it out and if needed I can get some photos and try to post for you.....

Can't wait to see pix of 1665. As efficient as Reeves cross compounds are, I bet that little 16/13 about makes water!

I hears a lot of stories from the older steam guys about that little old Reeves and that it was all but new when Danuser was done with it.

The little baby runs so easy it is almost ridiculous. It is absolutely the easiest handling and firing little engine I have ever run, blows them bald headed chickens (haha) out of the water!!!!!! I would be willing to put it up against a chicken (Case that is) anyday of the week of equal ratings....... My old 32 Sawyer fired easy for as big as it was but this little thing is amazing, even when running it on simple on the hills here it wouldn't drop pressure, but I am sure it would if I left it there for awhile........no little hills either, front end gets light and starts to bob up and down.........had 3 witnesses to see that one that cold day..... Can't wait to have it finished up in the spring.......

Chuck,
Just out of curiousity, have you been cataloging all the engines in WI? What about Gaar-Scott engines?

There is not much to do when cataloging Garrs in WI There may only be one traction--another 25--maybe their biggest seller? And one skid engine. I do try to keep track of most makes, but the answer is no regard doing a good job of cataloging them.

Chuck,
What's the G/S skid engine? I haven't ever seen one except in catalogs. I'd love to know if any of their 35 HP or 50 HP skid engines survived, which were the real monsters of their line.

Do you know who owned the 25 HP G/S single that was at Rock River last year? I was there early Fri. and it wasn't steamed up, but looked like it had been inspected.

Mike

The 25 Gaar single you saw at the Rock River Show is owned by Pat Mullarkey--I know him well.
It does hold a current state of WI inspection.
REgard the G-S skid here in WI--It was about 10 years ago when I saw it--about three hours North of here--a small town near Marshfield. I have a picture of it here somewhere--little help that does, as I am unable to post pictures here anyway. I am quite sure I wrote down the engine number, but I don't think there was any hint as to HP on it. I'll bet some steam guys up near there would know what happened to it.

Gaar Scott Skid Engine. In 1975 I saw in good size Gaar Scott Skid Engine in Montana and tho its not there now am sure its still around. Will check and see if can find out where it went. It had the engine mounted below and along side of the boiler. John Tysse Jr

John,
That's probably one of the big 35's or 50's, as they were made where the engine could be detatched. I'd love to see some pics, and see exactly what it is. Thanks!
