You sure are pulling in the model engines lately Eric.

Your about where I was two/three years ago when I was buying everything that wasn't nailed down.

I have a lot of McCoy engines, but none that look like that. McCoy 5? Never knew that made one or are you rounding up .049 or is it a model 5? Weird head, all those fins!

I have kept this in my files for some time. Maybe you have seen it.

I'm suspecting that someone "bozoed" an Atwood glow head on it.

I agree, it does look like an Atwood head, but here's a picture of what it probably looked like originally.  Cylinder and everything else looks correct.

Who knows? It might run fine with the Atwood glow head. If so, it will probably run good on a plug version of an Atwood or Wen Mac muff. In which case, finding replacement plugs won't be such a problem. Keep us posted.

i'd think a McCoy, Wen-Mac needle would work, unsure about ball socket, all you can do is tear it down and look?
