Are you referring to this picture?

The engine that came on the tether car is on the left, my replacement engine is on the right. Both have intake screens, while the Cox Babe Bees that I bought back in the early 1950's had no venturi screens which I always thought pre-dates these.

Even the pictured backplates are different castings, with Made in USA on one but not the other and the screens and openings are quite different too.

After the fun wears off I will probably clean the original engine, slightly clean the body and retire both to my display case.

I disassembled and cleaned the tether car engine today, no A/F boil just hot Simple Green. Considering how dirty it was it cleaned up well, too good almost.

Now I will have to clean the car. Any ideas on how to do it without lifting the decals? Warm water and detergent is out of the question.

I'd try Dawn dish washing liquid and water on a Q-Tip. Do an inconspicuous corner first.
