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

Art comes in many different forms... My wife and I had a holiday in Nice, France this Easter, and visited the museum of modern art. Interesting building and architecture, but I did not really "get" most of the "art" there.

This piece did cause the "oh the HUMANITY" reaction:




The title did make me chuckle, as I had had a very good Creme Brulee the night before, much better than "Dynamite and Brulee" lol!



Here is an unidentified French car (guessing Renault), in a similar form:



Plus a couple of other pieces:







I sort of "got" this and found it amusing:

My long held opinion is " If I can do it, it's not art..."
I thought the French were more sophisticated than having a burned out car hull displayed as high art !!
I can drive around the I-285 "Super Circle" and see 3 or 4 of those everyday.
The common folk here call the burned wrecks "Carbeque ".
Of course, the more educated hoi poloy refer to the burned cars as " Auto Flambe" ....

Well, that museum was definitely a weird experience. But it was good to get indoors for a while, we both burn easily in the sunshine. A lot of those works were from the late '50s, I guess there was a lot of experimenting going on. Weird stuff indeed.

Here's an example of the more traditional stuff:



Mostly we just walked around the old town, and of course the "Promenade des Anglais" by the Mediterranean.

I know this is in very poor taste. But, I am sure we have lots of carbeque in this area, now. If our wild fires keep moving west we will also get lots of auto flambé.

I see this modern art, but personally I don't really care for it. I consider art to be something that one must put skill and imagination to work, something that really requires talent. One would understand a child showing their art, that being so young and inexperienced can appreciate nurturing from a parent or teacher, who one day may become a skilled artist. For such giving praise and encouragement is worth it. But modern art by adult? I digress.

Now the statue of David, that is a work of art. If someone took that beat up car and restored it to its former glory would be a work of art.

The cruched red car is a Renault Dauphine. The cylinder comes from a Panhard & Levassor engine. It is post war. The model could be Dyna, Dyna Z, PL 17 or PL 24. I got several of these cylinders. Am I rich now??

Well, if you have some pink paint handy, you may well be rich Smile

Iremember the exhaust manifold you made for the Traction Avant, that, my friend, truly is a piece of art!

ebay.com Item 371894732813 RC Tech Cox 098 V Twin Nitro Engine


$717.40 USD (658.49 EUR) including shipping, wow! Since it does not fire simultaneously leads to less than efficient crankcase volumetric efficiency for fuel air mixture delivery. It's a reworked Sure Start of all things. A little machining, sand blast the machined crankcase with clean letter stamping, we are definitely in the wrong business. Rolling Eyes
