While searching ebay I found this little guy.
Immediately I was taken back to my childhood home, my Dad, and the model I once owned.
I can't remember the exact model, but I do remember the screen was installed.

New to Me, Cox Engine  S-l16011

Similar to this, (not my model)
New to Me, Cox Engine  Engine11

The engine was stuck, so I soaked in Marvel Mystery Oil for 24 hrs, then a quick boil on the stove and he freed up.
Next a bath in Simple Green and a scrub with a stiff toothbrush. WD-40 to finish up...
The backplate, heat shield, Needle Valve, gaskets and screws came from my parts.
(Not sure if the backplate should have a screen installed, as this is the type I chose...)

All in all I am very happy with the outcome...
Thanks for looking Small Cox Logo

Thanks Bob,
Actually, I learned of Marvel MO and heating the engine, to free up, from reading your posts.
So many thanks to you!

It's nice to know that someone actually reads my stuff. Smile

I thought your method looked familiar. Be careful of the WD40, if left in quantity it will gum up your engine over time. I learned that many years ago the hard way. I use Remoil liberally then blow out with compressed air, then follow with a few drops of after run oil in the exhaust ports and venturi, then flip over several times.

I use the WD-40, for lack of a better word, polish.
I use 3 in 1 oil in the ports, crank and bottom of piston.
3 in 1 was recommended in one of the instruction manuals I had as a child. Have always used this...
