Another beauty !! I just read your other post with the Briggs N and this one is just as nice or nicer :thumbs:   I think I could put that engine on the kitchen shelf and my wife would be proud of it too

That is a very nice looking engine. I like the color, really shows off everything.

Beautiful work. Those engines were very nicely styled and your restoration does the design justice!

Excellent to see a REO getting the red carpet rolled out.  I'm looking forward to the rest of the mower!

thanks for all + feedback on my REO 552. It is the original engine off a 1950 REO ROYALE DELUX I'm restoring,it is 1 1/2 hp. the paint I used is dupli.color engine enamel with ceramic,DETROIT DIESEL
ALPINE GREEN,this is the nearist match to the original paint on the engine and other parts. I will have more pick's as the resto. goes on.
thanks Mike S.
