1912 REO Cylinder jug


Recommended Posts

I have a friend that is looking for a cylinder jug for a 1912 REO. It looks like picture. This one has a crack on the inside of the cylinder in the combustion chamber above the cylinder wall. 

 

I have been told that this jug is interchangeable for all REO's from about 1910 - 1924.

 

If anyone know of one for sale, please PM me.

 

Thanks

The block could be fixed by a stitcher...........cost would be dependent on location, and a possible sleeve, but not for sure till it’s inspected. What ever the result, often a problem you have is common, and thus good used blocks may be hard to locate.

I had the same problem with a 1910 REO I owned years ago. I bought an expensive deep socket to get the center nut off (which I still have and don't think I've used since) and I remember I made a puller. I forget now what the looks like inside the clutch housing but the puller was fairly short and used a fine thread bolt in the center. If I remember correctly, I put it under maximum tension then struck the head of the bolt with a big hammer and it broke loose.

Larry,

     I have a 1915 REO engine I have been trying to disassemble.   The flywheel is stuck on the crankshaft.   A lot of heating and beating hasn't budge it.   How did you get yours off?

The car is not mine.  The car belongs to a friend of mine and he has only taken the jug that is cracked off the engine.  Looking at your set up, I would say that probably not enough heat. From a cost standpoint, you might try using MAPP gas, but an Oxy-Acetylene torch would probably give you enough heat to allow the flywheel to come off.  When heating try tapping it with a hammer and block of wood to try to jar it loose.   That would be my best suggestion without being there to see all of the particulars.    Good Luck.

Someone has found a 1917 REO engine in a scrap yard in RI...there is a new thread under "Parts for Sale." I am pretty certain the jugs are interchangeable as is most of the engine. If you really need it I don't think the asking price is out of line.
