Never seen a thermal hopper speed pan before. Looks like the rear intake is part of the pan.

That's a Space Bug .049 with the tank cut away.
Free flight hobbyists were the first to recognize the power of the engine for competition. The speed guys followed suit.

It’ll be interesting to see if it’s an early engine with the bronze bushing in the crank case.
Throughout 1952 it was popular to cut the tanks for speed jobs.
In 1950, ½ A speed was just beginning to be recognized by the A.M.A, so the engine came out at just the right time.

Don't you just love some of the ebay descriptions?  "See pictures".  Why, thanks What?

Actually, not a bad collection, but a few missing prop-drivers etc. Couple of crusty Gilberts wanting a crock-pot soak there.

Hmmm....  Actually some usable parts in there.  And I love me some pipe bomb engines.  Anyone bidding on this?  If not, I'll bid on the lot.
