Unhappy Desperately Need Reid Parts

Hello to everyone, I need a Joseph Reid magneto eccentic, an original reid gas valve(thread size does not matter), and a lollipop oiler stand(stand which holds a drip oiler that drips into lollipop oiler). Please email me if you have any of these parts for sale. Thanks Steve

Steve,
The lollypop oiler stand are not hard to make if you can't find one. I used a 1/2" tee, sat it on end on a table with playdoe in the bottom thread area, poured melted solder into top end until it ran out of side hole. added brass pipe to 1/4" copper fitting and then 1/4" copper pipe for drip leg.

Used a wall mount plate on trailer and long enough 1/2" pipe for stand.

Would love to find an actual stand but I hear they are very rare.

Hello, Greg thanks for the information! I'll probably end up doing what you did since the stands are rare.

I got a gas value. However I still need a MAG ECCENTRIC. Any help would be appreciated in finding one. Steve
