If you don't know already, the original paint color is comparable to GM Dark Carmine Red - NON Metallic, used on Chevy and GMC pick up trucks 1969 - 1970 vintage.

Thanks Andrew, I have some Reids that have a trace of paint that looks like GM carmine, But this one was a lot redder. We used a 1969 GM flat interior color and did some tinting. This engine is a newer engine 1927. Had alot of original paint in spots. Looks like the old red lead paint. Wish I hadn't painted it, sons idea. Next will be putting chrome mags on the trailer.

We're just about finished with my son's 1927 Reid. Going to Volcano Days this weekend for its 1st appearance. This engine has alot of sentimental history for our family. His Great Grandpa bought this one new and drilled the well where it sat for the last 80+ years. What would Grandpa think ??????

Well, we survived Volcano Days 2011. Had a lot of rain at the beginning of the weekend, had to lock it in 4WD to get in to set up. The rest of the weekend weather turned out great. Saturday she ran good for 12 hours, and didn't skip a beat. Both of my son's grandpa's were there and happy to see the old engine running again. My son was pretty proud of his engine. We even made the local news. Here is a link to the story and video.

Nice video of the engine. I saw the Mason's L. Spence at 1:00 -1:04 and a few other engines that I know.

Scott,

I think that it is really cool that you were able to get the family engine back in your family. I also think that it is great that it became a Family restoration project. Some of my best memories are those of my Dad and I working on old engines. Thanks for sharing this story with all of us.

James

Exclamation Re: Another Reid

I saw in one of the early posts, that the engine came out of Mcfarlan WV. There must have been quite an oil field out there, as I was told my engine club's Oil City/South Penn came from there too!

Yes, Macfarlan Creek was a huge oil lease. Probably over a hundred wells in a small area. It was also well known for being "Ritchie Mines", being the only asphalt mine in the U.S. It paved the streets of Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington D.C. It was a booming, wealthy area, in its day- being in the middle of nowhere. The hundred horse pattin compressor engine that Tom Schoolcraft sold a few years back, shown in earlier posts, was also on that lease. There's still a few band wheels and old iron laying around.
