Finally got the RED-E to my house and running. My brother had in running for a while when I was a little kid and I always loved it. Eventually the mag died on it and it has been sitting for many years just collecting dust. Finally pulled it out of my parents' barn and brought it up to my house and got it going. Had to rebuild the mag and the original carb was cracked and pretty much made of seal-all and it has no shroud so I found an old similar parts motor with a similar carb and did a carb swap and will get the shroud fitted to it. Test fired it with the new carb and after a little tuning it runs great but had to use a fan to keep it from getting too hot until I get the shroud on. These RED-E tractors seem pretty unique and once I get it all tuned and complete I hope to tear it down for a re-paint and make some new decals. I will post pics as it progresses. If anyone has info about the RED-E tractors I would love to know. With the shroud gone I can't even date the engine but I think its from that late 1940's?
