Why, it's an ultra-rare Menasco 'Pirate' inline 4! Gonna have a short run on that tank though...

I was not familiar with that engine so looked it up. Turns out it powered early Ryans that became PT trainers and others, cool.

I don't remember if Harrison Ford had the Menasco inline four or the Menasco five cylinder radial on his Ryan PT two seater when he did a lawn dart impression in the Santa Monica golf course in 2015......

Nothing in the front 3 holes. Might have a shaft extension and just the 4th cylinder active, or nothing at all.

Interesting... sorta.

Well the tank backplate ain't broke. That's gotta be worth something??

Honestly, if I was to go to the trouble, I would at least align the crankcases & use matching cylinders and heads.

That's right...I had forgotten about the Kinner...
I saw a Kinner radial running once at an airshow and it may have been in a Ryan. I love the sound of any radial engine running especially a warbird....

I find both of them sort of interesting... The black "inline" is clearly meant for decoration, and it does resemble the inline 4's like Gypsy Major or the PT-19 engine mentioned before. If I didn't know anything about Cox engines, this is something I might have in my office. For a non-functional jumble of parts it is kinda cool IMO.

The other one then... Looks like a Tee Dee tank mount and a .051 bottom end plus 3 mufflers... I might be tempted to pay $21 for it if the shipping would be reasonable (that's another $25 for me). Most likely though the mufflers are missing the steel parts Huh... As a "unit" I don't find it attractive but it is almost worth the price in parts. Again IMO.

That 4 cylinder one looks cool to me just as a curio cabinet display piece

I may replicate something similar some cold winter day from all the Bee Parts in my junk cigar box
