15 HP Reid Engine Goes From Unsteady Runner to Smooth Operator

Getting a Reid engine’s combustion chamber to diesel for smooth performance

Pulleys Turned By Reid Engine
These are just some of the pulleys the Reid turns. The dynamo, the air compressor, the shop's line shafts, the radiator fan and the exhaust fan all are driven by this first line in the engine room. The air compressor comes on and off on its own, varying the engine's load by 6 HP.
