John, we just got home from the Catoosa show where we ran one of your baby Reids for two days. Those are fantastic engines and a lot of fun to play with. Mike needs to put a cooling tank on the engine. It only holds about 2 gallons of water and we ran it until we started to boil the water and had to let it rest while we played with the oil burner Reid.
I saw that 4 hp while we were there. Guess I should have said hello. You guys were starting the big engine when we walked up.

Reed, wish you had stopped for a short visit. I know sometimes guys don't like being interupted when they are starting an engine, but visiting is always fun. To me these old engines are just a excuse to gather at shows for fun and fellowship. Hope to see you at Pawnee in the spring.
