Hello,
Does anyone recognize this engine? This is the only picture I have from a local ad. I can't figure it out and maybe the value.

Thanks Canso07.

ok I've figured it out, it's a Herkimer OK Cub .059R manufactured in 1960. Never seen it before.

Thanks Canso07.

I guess the Cox head that's fitted distracts from the easy identification of the Cub. It should have the original hex type head. These were a good running engine. Not sure about power output as I've never flown mine. Also never compared the Cox head.

The (c.'58) Cub glowhead and head/glowplug is the same size as a Cox ('56) head, likewise the early Cub head/glowplug fits the pre '56 Cox. Kinda neat as it gives you the option to run a short glow plug on a Cox.

Rumor has it Bill Atwood designed the reedie engines for Cub as they had very little R&D by the late fifties.

Thanks for the tip Mark. I've got a couple of SBJrs. in need of heads and a whole bunch of Cub .049B head/cylinder assemblies. Just tried a test fit on one. The Cub assembly came with one thin and one thick copper gasket factory installed. With just the one thin washer the SBJr. piston jams at TDC, with both no. Proceed with caution.
