By a landslide vote of 1 to 0 I was voted "Most Deserving of a New Something" at my house so I found an eBay deal on a cruddy Fox .35/Cox .049 package, both missing parts.
The Fox turned out to be the '53 version with Ranger head and O&R prop driver which cleaned up nicely and, after installing an NVA, started easily and ran very well on the bench.
Need to get a backplate, screws and glowhead for the Cox but I'm confident it'll run as it should when complete.

If you love 'em, "too many" is just nonsensical noise. Very Happy

Thanks for the supportive comments, fellows.
The Fox .35 was the Holy Grail of engines for me in the '50s but, at $9 or so (I couldn't afford even a $6 McCoy!), only an unobtainable dream.
I've made up for that now. Very Happy

Nice Fox, I have a couple 53's and a couple 54's. My favorite is the 53' mounted on my Ringmaster. It's had hundreds of flights on it and runs as good as ever. I use a modern Fox needle for dead reliable runs.

Super clean-up on that Fox Terry. Pot boil or just old fashioned tooth brush scrub?

This one is a 1 or 2 flip starter after light prime, Ron. I think it's close to being broken in.  lol!
I installed the classic Fox "single flat" needle - a bit of trouble to dial in sometimes but holds setting well and I seldom need to fiddle with it afterwards.

3ish hour pot/anti-freeze, Bob, followed by brushes. Not pristine looking but I think quite presentable for a 64 yr-old. Very Happy

Yes, Eric, I've bought 5 used Fox .35s on eBay over time - one with totally rusted/ruined P&L I had to replace and the other 4 just needed cleaning up, a new NVA and maybe a gasket or new screws.
Unless you buy from a vendor you know and trust, used engines on eBay are always a "pig in a poke" purchase but mine all run great now.
