...and it was changed after 2-3 years, more like a Cox reed: Aurora Tornado .049 - Page 2 Second10

That confirms my earlier suspicion that there were two completely different reed systems used....your timeline of 2-3 years would put the change into the last year of production ca 1963.....AFAIK the Aurora/K&B Tornado production ceased with the introduction of the Stallion 049...which appeared in '63. That being said-the second type looks as though it might be easier to replicate from mylar or teflon than the earlier domed diaphragm...the question being whether the tank spigot on the early models is compatible with the later type of reed if retrofitted...?

And let me just guess. Mark is the only one of us here that has the easier to replicate design.... Laughing

It does appear that Mark has one of the last and best of this series, and a rare one at that. It was about the same time that A.C. Gilbert failed in marketing their RTF's with the lower performing and heavier Gilbert engines.
Very few could successfully compete against Leroy Cox and his superior yet cheaper engines and RTF's. Shocked Wink lol!
