I don't think anything outdid a TD until the Stels and Norvels came out around 1990.  Maybe some home made ones. The Holland Hornet was maybe best until the TD came out around 1960?

The FOX .049 FAI is also a contender for the strongest engine, came out around 1965 I think?
I don't have any of those myself though...

Is this a trick question Very Happy

Define ”best”...

Would it be ”the” engine that served as the entry step to ICE aeromodelling for a countless number of enthusiasts?

Or maybe even this:

I may be a wee bit prejudiced but for me the best .049 glow engine ever produced was the Enya .049 made in both throttled and unthrottled configurations. Introduced in the very early 1960's, it's fit and finish far exceeds it's contemporaries of the day especially when taking into account it's complexity. Curious, Enya did not market it extensively saving that for it's first cousins the .06 and .08.

This is the very engine that mesmerized me and sent me into the bunch of COX enthusiasts forever, the postage stamp backplate reedie I got from a Western European friend who crashed his Stuka in 1974 and cannibalized the plane, leaving this cutie with me. (The Golberg mount was added decades later courtesy ebay)

Apart from it of course the brute line of TeeDee-s with the liliputian 010 and the equally  unrivaled 020,  the 049-s and 09-s will never be surpassed in my hall of famous hero  engines.. RC Plane

Ian, you claim the last engine as the worst, so does that mean that you have rated them top to bottom best to worst?

Yes Bob, spotted that. The right hand engine has the backplate upside down. That's a problem as there appears to be a cut-out to allow the piston to reach BDC. (As well as the fact thay you can't get to the top mounting screw that way.)

Rod.

Bob talked about the superior fit & finish of the Enya. You certainly didn't get that with the Fox. Colloquially "Rough as Guts".

No - no particular order but you can’t have a best without pointing out the worst!

I have a few of the Enya 049s and they are really reliable little runners.

My favourites are always going to be the diesels. I will post more later today.

It is how an engine fares in a model that counts - looks aren’t everything. Steady, reliable, easy to start .............not forgetting how it sounds and smells. That diesel bark .......... !

As far as the aesthetics go, the best looking engine in my opinion is the Space Hopper:

I'm well familiar with diesel. First engine I ever operated was (my brother's) original Mills P75. Not quite .049 but pretty close. As a 12 year old I never had too much trouble making that thing run. It was a friendly engine which showed little malice.
