I have purchased ebay lots of just broken down Cox parts. Sort out the good parts from the junk and build away. I try to build engines that Cox would have sold but sometimes I have made customized engines.

I like the Cox car engines with the large splined shaft. The large spline fits the TD .09 drive plate perfectly. I turn down the OD of the drive plate to match the crankcase diameter and then add a drive washer between. These make good dieseled engines or Texaco style to swing large props.

I do a similar thing as Jason. The red tank is from a QRC with a larger venture opening. I removed the intake screen and shaped it. Early crankcase, twin ported cylinder, and high comp head. I think it would've been a cool engine. The second is the engine and cradle from a Hornby Hoverer. I polished the mount and cleaned the engine. It makes an interesting display.

Ok, Enough!!!!!!

You guys are setting the bar mighty high for me to even compete much less duplicate.

Beautiful examples all. I will be happy to get a running engine or two. Smile

Stay tuned.
