OK Cub parts wanted

Wanted OK Cub parts wanted

Post  Oldenginerod on Sat Mar 31, 2018 6:17 am

I got a really neat looking OK Cub .074 a few months back but it has a broken rod. I pulled it apart and everything else seems really good. Can anyone help me out with a rod? A fellow up the road does engineering and once told me that if I ever need anything made he's happy to help out. I thought he meant as a favour. When I presented him the engine and said I needed a new rod made he started talking $100++++. Not what I expected. Could be one floating around in someone's spares box, so if there's one out there I can have (cheap), I'd be happy to hear from you.

Cheers.

Rod.

I checked my box of OK Cubs Rod in the loft hoping that I had a partzer that I could send you, but no joy. I have two .074's both look new un-ran, and yes, they are neat looking little engines. Good luck in finding that part.



But I owe you some thanks. A sparrow had come in through the open garage door and got up into the loft flying window to window and leaving a mess. I opened a window and took out the screen and he/she flew out. Otherwise days later I would have had a bigger mess and a dead bird to contend with. Sad

Yo Rod!

I got one if Mark doesn't.  Given to me by Tee Bee (Troy), it's missing it's spraybar, but is otherwise complete.  Figure he won't mind if I re-gift it for your project.

I'll watch this thread to see how it goes.  Figure the trick will be to get it to you without a bunch of money on postage...

Hey Bob, no problems.  I forgot to mention to you about the sparrow.   lol! Glad you got rid of it without too much damage.  They can be pesky & messy, that's for sure.

Mark, "need anything else?" might be a dangerous question.  Sure!!  Well, let me think & I'll get back to you.  I grabbed a huge order from OK Engines before Ted retired, but didn't need the rod at the time, although it wasn't in the catalogue anyway.  I'll PM you with my thoughts.

Kim. Considering Mark's offer of possible extras, we might hang off with the parts engine for now until we find out what he has.  I guess the cheapest way to get me what I want would be to just pull the rod and stick it in an envelope, 'cos that's really all I need for this engine.  If I get a virtually complete engine, I'll just wanna get that one going too, so I'll still be looking for parts.
I can't stand having engines with bits missing- they all deserve a chance to run again.

....so, i'm looking thru my parts and i notice there's one piston larger than all the rest, so i ask it, what is it doing there hanging with.049's? It told me he'd been hanging around waited for me to ship to Roddie!

I'm guessing/hoping it should work, lmk if need anything else?

Thanks Mark.  Sounds good.  Check your PMs.  049B crankshaft as well if you can spare one.  Let me know what you want for them. Should be cheap shipping if we just go for an envelope.  (To Australia remember).  I know out here it can be considerd a "letter" if it's under 20mm thick.  USPS might work the same.  Thumbs Up

*Update*  OK Cub parts from Mark arrived today.  Piston & rod looks new.  Just got to retrieve my engine off the guy who was going to make me a rod (yeah, for $100, not!) so I can make sure it fits.  Nice generous bunch of extras shipped out with it as well.  A couple of OK Cub heads, one anodized blue, a Red Cub starter spinner, NOS Perfect thimble set and a beautiful clear Tornado 6X4 prop. BONUS!!
Thanks Mark.  Sent me all that for no dollars too. I Love This Forum!

Has anybody ever had a Cub .074 that would run any better and produce more power than a mid-level example of a Cub .049 ?

I have two or three that seem to be clean low timers and they only impressed me with their decibel level.

What size prop are you running on it? They should run a little stronger, but not like night and day different.

I have run a well used one on a 6X4 & it seemed pretty strong. I know what you mean about the noise.

I've tried a Wen-Mac 6-4 and a Zinger 7-3 woodie.
