Are the Cox engines designed to go only one direction? I've noticed spring starters that can be right and left twists.
Any comments will be welcomed.

First comment: :WELCOME TO THE FORUM!

Second comment: Yes, reed valve Babe Bee type engines will run in either direction.
So, depends on your design you can have a pusher or a tractor setup. Then you'd select either the "left hand" or " right handed" spring starter'

Welcome Garry.
The TeeDee Cox engines will run c-cwse, but
you'll have to install a left handed crankshaft.
As far as I know, Cox only made left hand cranks
for ,049/.051 TeeDees.

Actually Cox made about 50 Left Hand crankshafts for the TD .020 according to Art Johnson from Illinois.
I bought many, many Cox parts from him at the annual Perry, GA model show including a Left Hand TD .020 crankshaft aforementioned..
I seem to recall that Mark B. knew him well from the Oshkosh kids flying circle and could possibly substantiate the qty made.
I haven't seen Art at Perry for several years now. Great Guy and 1/2a expert. Hope all is well with him..
