Complicated reed system.

#20 casting. Other Aurora .049 engine was 21

Cox gaskets are not a good fit, including the head gasket.  But the Cox take-down tools do work.

Back plate is missing the vent/fuel tubes.  Took a lot of work to clean it up. Fuel nipple was plugged with castor.  Going to drill it out and insert brass tubing. Used a spare back plate, but the plastic is crazed and may leak.

A pain to put together.  Simple for those with three hands.  Engine attaches as a module.

Finished. Cowling is loose because fuselage tabs are broken off. Flyable without it.

Damaged box turned out well.  Thankfully I got to it before some idiot did with tape.

I hate tape.  It's so simple to repair boxes without it.
