Default 25 Hp Reid - New project!

My wife wanted this one, so I didn't have a say in the matter! Everythings stuck on this one.

Chuck, It sound kind of like the financial advertisement, "When ____________speaks, People listen." If you are telling the whole truth, You are one lucky guy. Dave in Holt. PS we'll be watching for progress reports.

After I finished up a 20 hp bessemer, my son had to have the pumping power to belt up to it.

Here's a shot of Teresa using a 120 pound lead bar she rigged up on the backhoe to hammer the flywheel on her new toy. Now if she can only get the piston unstuck before the week end!

I dont think i would have stood under that bucket like she did, or if i did i would have put a prop under it, just in case a hose busted or something.

Chuck, the tomato plant in your first pic looked very healthy, can't find iit in your later pics, hope Teresa didn't drive over it with the backhoe. In respones to your 2 nd pic, I drove trac-trl for 35 years and a lot of people called the end I hooked the tractor to the back of the trl when I was unloading ,I guess because they were standing at te back looking forward so you can call whichever end you want the back.

I suspect the tomato plant looks so healthy because of all the B S Chuck is spreading around. I am working on a 12 HP Reed from the Cabele sale right now. Nice engines but why does everything have to be so heavy?

Some day I hope to have a BIGGER Reid all I got is that ones smaller brother to play with. They are fun to run. Took me some tinkering to get this one to run nice. I dont have a hot tube and run it on buzz coil and carb.. Looks like a fun project now to talk the wife into WANTING one LOL
