Wow, what a cache of engines and 2 good snags, the earlier Golden Bee and (drum roll) Tee Dee .051! cheers Even if the Golden Bee lacks the earlier 3 piece piston, you still have a "Hollywood" set engine. On display or on a plane, it would be photogenically correct for the period. No one would be able to tell the difference on the "silver screen" (YouTube).  Wink

Now all you need is a period correct plane to show off your Golden Bee prize! Smoking

Will do, nice running engine BTW. I am most impressed with the tank seal. Good work, shuts right down when you blocked the vents. It needs a spring, but in no way would I ever put one on! The anodizing is too nice.

So I got this on order, I should get it this week off the ebay.  Looks to be a rose gold front from a golden bee with a space bug (?) back.  I'm hoping that one of these has the 3 piece piston and I can have a complete one.

I think the Golden Bee will be correct with either piston. Apart from the neat factor, the 3 piece pistons are not that great. Very sloppy ball socket fit with no good way to fix.

The backplate in the pic above doesn’t look like a thermal hopper to me. If it is it’s been heavily modified. Doesn’t matter because you are looking for the snout anyway.

So I realized I had 2 early Golden Bees. Took some pictures, one has never been run the other has. Neither had the 3 piece. I really think they came with either, but that’s only a semi-educated guess.

I have attached pics so you can see the condition of the 2 examples. You’ll have to excuse my dirty fingernails, been refinishing old chairs all day.

Hey there Ron. Your Golden Bees look very nice. What makes your Golden Bees the early models? Is it the big head on the needle, or different cylinder? I have one and would be fun trying to date it, or at least figure out earely or late model. Thanks.

The big head needle is one difference. The backplate color, lack of screen, no made in USA on backplate. Glow heads are early 302-1 on both. Tapered crankcase, no groove for starter spring, thin walled #2 cylinders and the anodizing is a little more pale than the later GB. That’s some of the differences, but I probably forgot one or two.

Good stuff guys, Mike I will pm you, what do you want in return? RC plane stuff all sizes if you need something.

As far as this golden bee I think it has the fill/breather tubes on the backplate, but I have to check again, I got tied up since getting back from a business trip. So I may just have the tank and now the front from the one I am waiting on (shipping says Thursday).

Nice find, it's definitely not a Thermal Hopper or Space Hopper intake, it's likely from a Avion Shinn.

Here's a good comparison of the early Golden Bee

Got this late last week.

The postman came today - Page 2 20180519

Here it is fit to the older golden bee tank. The color is almost identical.

The needle fixture appears to be a chopped tank with a nva tapped into the venturi fyi.

I did the same thing with a Pee Wee but used a RC carb at the end, also bored out the stem a
bit to increase the air/fuel mix.

Hi Mike! I did get those pistons, but as we were leaving to camping for a spell. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.
They look like they are in great shape! I ran a few engines with my son today, I hope to get my golden bee working soon, it seems like both halves are in good working order, it will probably just need a new tank gasket and will be ready to go. I will post the results soon!
