early and late Tee Dee

Post  Roland_H on Thu Dec 29, 2016 12:54 pm

Hello everyone,

how can one decide it's an early (~1961) or a later (~1980) Tee Dee .051 or .049 ? As far as I know the cylinder is different. There is a thin walled cylinder and a thicker, more rugged one, both .049 and .051. While  .049s have a #4 cylinder and .051s have a #5 cylinder. Moreover, the venturi mesh screen was added in around 1973.
That' s outside. Any clue?

Inside issues: when tinkering with .051 spare parts I found out there is certain parts that fit together and some don't. E.g. I have cranks that won't fit into cases and vice versa (cranks were a bit too short), some cranks have plastic washers, some have metal ones. Is there any indication which parts belong to earlier or later .051s ?

I searched the site (and the web) for these issues, but no answers so far.

Thanks
Roland

My oldest TD 049 has an oil hole on the crank end of its rod, which is also a different material than COX conrods are today. The piston is made of 3 parts (the top is not smooth as in the latest COX engines but the cup of the balljoint is swaged into the piston.)
The piston/cylinder combo has tapered bore, and the venturi does not have the screen on it.
