    real good motor as long as you don't buy one in a big truck! the Gold Comet was a Zero engine the bore and stroke was the same! When I say big truck I mean they are a good motor for trucks like the one shown but Reo started to put the engine into bigger tandem's with 25 yd Leach garbage packers and also 12 yd dump bodys and that was the not what this engine was intended for! It is a short stroke motor and when you put a lotta weight behind it it over rides the gov. and over speed the engine and puts windows in the side of your motors! The USA bought a lot of these for the mult. so if you go on line I'm sure u will find some one with parts

    What kind of speed did the Mack go with that engine?I believe the REO in the pic is a straight 5 with a single speed rear.

    9.02, that's a logging ratio!

    It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
