You got a good deal!  You should be able to make your new engine run again (unless there’s catastrophic internal damage)  a little buffing and polish it’ll be spitting fire all over the place. Thumbs Up

0.99 + 4.85 postage from The Land of Fruits and Nuts. Odds on it being fairly easily put into running condition?

Nice find, ticomareado.
If it is simply locked up with Castor and can be made to run again, then it will be a real bargain.

Doing similar to you, I took a chance on this one. E-Bay Item# 223202844484, Torpedo 35 Nitro Engine Green Head, $21.50 + $7.85 shipping from East Coast. Seller had totally positive feedback both as seller and buyer, so I felt it was a reasonable risk. Will know more when the engine arrives.

Man after my own heart Victor. I bottom fished for Enya's on ebay for over a year until I finally got my fill. The "worst of the worst" I called them. My joy was busting them down then building them back up. NIB's just sit there.

Not quite bottom fishing but close, won the following with only and first bid, a Fox .15X R/C. This one has the ganged rotary exhaust baffle linked to the carburettor. Once I get it, ought to clean up nicely.

$9.99 + $6.70 Shipping + $1.39 Tax (seller is in my state) = $18.08 Total.

Got this from edatzia of Las Cruces, NM. So far I have bought a couple engines from him, and he seems to be honest in his descriptions, and they so far have been reasonable deals.

He described it as, "This is a used FOX .15 R/C ENGINE. This engine is in good condition but the rear cover is missing. It has very good compression. Replace that rear cover and you will have a very nice little engine."

I've got an extra backplate for it, so it will be complete when I am done.

More bottom feeding (paid a little more than absolute bottom, perhaps the scum that floats just above the bottom?  lol! )

.... last of the K&B .35 Stallion, this time an RC version, circa 1970's. Just won this today for $13.50 + $11.80 shipping from PA.

There is some surface rust here and there. Head and back screw slots look like they haven't seen much wrenching. Mounting lugs show it was mounted at one time, but appears that it hasn't had much installation and removal. Is missing the exhaust baffle plate and carb link to it, but I have extra mufflers, so not needed. Will understand more when I get it, as to whether low time or not. In this case it does appear unmolested and probably underused. More to come ....

Thanks. She's full of dust, dirt and corrosion from non-use, probably since last used some 40 years ago. Will know more once I get it in about a week. Smoking

Will do, Bob. Very Happy This time though, I think my take down and clean up story will not be as dramatic as my other Stallion, the one claimed to have surface occlusions that was found to be corrosion from exposure to the elements. Mad (But it turned out to be a story with a happy ending. Thumbs Up )

Got the right muffler for it, a Tatone .45-.65 Short Peacepipe.
Take a look-see at what I got bottom fishing on Ebay Tatone10

Take a look-see at what I got bottom fishing on Ebay Tatone11

This one is just an example, I have several. I got them may be 5 years ago, when the E-Bay prices weren't as crazy for them as they are now. Someone recently was trying to sell one for $90 + shipping. (It was NOS in its original packing, but still IMO about double of what it was worth.)

I also have one NOS in package, the longer version, got it back then for something like $20 plus shipping or with shipping included. They just weren't in high demand then.

These mufflers work great if one uses an engine, i.e., the standard lower power cross scavenge (not Schneurle) from the lower end of the spectrum to below. Otherwise the chamber is too small.

Example, Enya .19-VI TV with Tatone .29-.40 Peacepipe:

Comparison, .29-.40 versus .09-.19 Peacepipe:

Take a look-see at what I got bottom fishing on Ebay Big_vs10

.09-.19 Peacepipe has opening suitable for .10 or smaller:

Take a look-see at what I got bottom fishing on Ebay Big_vs11

I use the .09-.19 Peacepipe successfully on my Enya .09-III TV.

You're not alone. Some, ok me, are forgetful in the diligence to take before, after, and during pictures...... I am usually too excited to work on a new engine that my time I remember the pictures, it is either disassembled or already reassembled and cleaned..... I'll try harder next time. Honest.

If it will flush out and flip nice with just a careful removal of glow plug, back plate (to conserve gasket) and removal of NV assembly for cleaning, I'd just go with an external cleaning. Better to let sleeping dogs lie with piston-sleeve fit.

I get that, goes to my "better a little dirty than a little broken" thing.

But these engines are robust and beg for investigations. It's a learning gig, not just for the doer but for the viewer as well.

You’re on a roll now George. You certainly have an affinity for the unloved engines.

Do you have a tach? I haven’t read anything good about peace pipes. It would be interesting to see how restrictive they are. I don’t own any and have no way to test.

They may seem to be unloved, but they are performers, not by today's standards, but in their day they were considered decent. The Duromatic McCoy .29 was prior to the Testor's purchase of the company, which made marketing decisions to use cheaper materials than Dick McCoy intended to undercut competition. Along with their lack of proper quality assurance in some years resulted in less than satisfactory engines in some cases.

I now have a tach. When I get a chance, will run some numbers may be in Spring. Regarding restrictiveness, yes, the Calumet mufflers were among the worst of the lot with a very restrictive internal baffle and hardly any expansion chamber.

Calumet internal baffles on an Enya .19-VI TV:
Take a look-see at what I got bottom fishing on Ebay Enya_110

Baffles removed by grinding, a McCoy .19 Red Head still ran hot in spite of:
Take a look-see at what I got bottom fishing on Ebay Tatone13

The Peacepipes are decent provided you put them on the low spectrum down to smaller engines than indicated. Didn't get a chance to show you when you were here before, but my Enya .09-III TV with .09-.19 Peacepipe flew really well on RC, a really good upgrade for an anemic .049 aircraft. This is why I put the .29-.40 Peacepipe on an Enya .15-III TV, which is right sized for it.

The last 2 of the 3 engines, the Stallion .35 RC and McCoy .29 CL are in shipping but not received yet, photos are from E-Bay. The Fox .15X-RC came in a couple days ago. I'll run a story on them when I clean them up.

That does look extremely clean George. Love the brass NVA and round black venturi insert. Shipped from Maryland. We lived there for many years.

I have seen a few "Blue" heads listed lately. Not a bidder but more of a dreamer.

I'd shine a light down glow plug hole to verify cleanliness, verify turn over, compression, and bushing fit. If A-OK, plug venturi and exhaust with Silly Putty, give her a good wash, rinse, dry-- then oil it internally and on gasket edges and finish off with aluminum polish and off to the display cabinet
