Wanted testors 049

Post  chevyiron420 on Sun Dec 18, 2016 5:58 pm

Does anyone have one of the testors engines with the black plastic tank the want to sell? Or even just the tank? I know they show up on ebay but they are too high for me most of the time. Ill try to post a pic of what im looking for.

Do you mean the earlier Testors engine with the beam mounts and tank mount, or the later "Pipe Bomb" engine with the clip in tank?

The black plastic tank sold with the Testors McCoy 'Redhead'. A Tee Dee red plastic tank would also work?

The Cox red tank mount will not fit the Testors .049/McCoy Redhead engine because the engine radial mount is triangular shaped and way too big........

Actually, I purchased a McCoy .049 as described which was attached to a red Tee Dee tank mount. Seems to fit just fine. No evidence of any modifications to make it fit in this case.

Rod,
You very well could be right.. I checked the 8 or so Testors McCoy .049 engines that I have ( including two Red Heads with the black tank) and all had the same triangular radial back and would not fit a Cox tank mount as mentioned.
You may have a different flavor Testors/McCoy that I 've never seen or maybe a Dremel tool rounded every thing out.
Interesting.........

I was lucky this past Spring at a swap meet and talked a guy out of one of those Testors tank mounts for a quarter. He didn't know what it was for, so he let it go cheap. cheers

Nope, standard McCoy/Testors engine. No mods. I assumed the tank was a Tee Dee tank as I haven't seen a similar one in red. Also doesn't look modified. Engine came bolted to it in an engine lot I grabbed off ebay. I'll have to revisit and find it & have a look. Just goin' off memory, which isn't so flash these days.
