Joe,

On the Reeves 2HP, take a look at the GEM article, Jan. 2006, pages 20-24, esp. the information from Mike Tyler on p. 23 on the SN ranges. SN 3000-3900, 1911; 3901-4800, 1912. So, the SN 4003 would appear to be early in 1912. Maybe Mike will chime in on this one and provide some more detailed information. Maybe this will be of some assistance/interest to you.

Best regards,

Don Siefker

I have a copy of a Gilson price list, it shows the style T. The date says "Effective October 15th, 1914". I belive they made this engine until they stopped making engines about 1927?

I can e-mail a copy directly to you, but I can't get it resized to post on here.

That is as close as I can get for you.

Bill
