They seem to be OK (USA) engine cylinders, right?

Yes Mauricio. OK Cub .049 cylinders. I have seen this done with Cox parts before but never with OK Cub parts. It seems that the engine is built correctly to run, whereas many that we see on ebay are not able to run.

Rod.

Rod.

If it's true Rod, it seems that this works, it would be great if there was a video, even help the seller.
I have an OK, I give it to a friend, it is an engine with very little use, but I have no manual, what is the ideal fuel for this engine? Do you know?

The best fuel would be the same as for your Cox engines. It should include castor oil and no more than 35% nitro. If you try to run the engine with more nitro something may break. My opinion on ideal fuel for these engines is, 20% oil (1/2 castor) and 15% nitro. Don't load the engine up too much. The needle valves on OK engines are very blunt so are difficult to adjust accurately. Extra nitro may help stabilize the adjustment.
