Sleepless and messing with my video program.
Nothing but old engines, making racket and slinging castor oil.

Nothing compares to a song sung by a COX engine..and that Van Morrison lyrics resonates to  "The last picture show", a 1971 cult film of Peter Bogdanovich featuring the young heart-throb Jeff Bridges..

Yes.. I loved the little wolf photo too.. and saved it in Eric's CEF 2020 folder in my stuff.

Hey Kim, great vid.. (as always) No doubt you're testing engines for the "Q-Tee" Cool

I get insomnia occasionally.. and just lie there letting the wheels turn Rolling Eyes .. hoping that I'll fall-back asleep. Maybe I should get out of bed and run some engines?

Roddie, not that I suffer from insomnia, but last night at 1am I added silicon tubes to seal the NV thread on some of my COX engines and swapped black nylon props on my planes with grey APC-s after balancing them. Clapping

Thanks Roddie!

It call it "The 2am Demons"...when I POP awake, and worry about stupid, inconsequential stuff (brain static) that I'd never give a second thought to in the daytime. Been this way for a long time, causing stress with both my ex-wives over the decades.

Sometimes, I can "trick" myself into being sleepy by trying to stay awake...doesn't always work...

NICE! I like seeing 190/290's.. especially without the aftermarket (CG) mount. The orphaned engines often have low-hours (if even one hour..) operation. Many are probably not even broken-in. They're "diamonds in the rough" because they also have the earlier "fine-threaded" needle-valve assembly.

You probably remember my experimental 2-pc. aluminum mounts that I made on the CNC router years back. Eric (getback) tried a pair that I sent.. but one of the mounts developed a "crack".. after a short time of engine-running. I haven't run the mounts on any of my engines yet.. but I made quite a few sets. The pre-drilled plate receives an equidistant 90 degree Z-bend.. forming when assembled; a firewall-mounting meant for a Babe Bee/Golden Bee etc. engine.

Apparently; metal-bending processes/metallurgy is something that I should have paid more attention to.. at some point.

I've been thinking of revisiting a Cox 190/290 engine-mount.. but I just read about JasonWI 3D printing some.. and sending samples to Bernie. I'd really like to see a new option become available. There are likely more orphaned product-engines out there (even still..) than there are engines that were bought "singly".. by modelers throughout the years. You see these engines frequently in parts-lot photos.

My last engine-buy 2017 included these..

Their NVA's are fine-threaded.. and their engine cylinder-porting generally breathes pretty good. They had to have some sack.. to be able to lift those heavy plastic airplanes.. Babe Bee .049

Same view here Roddie...these 190- s with 2 bypass port cylinders were on duty in Stukas that I understand were short lived planes and their young owners put the engine after the plane irreparably crashed into drawers to sit there unused (thanks also to the red postage stamp backplate that did not lend itself for easy re-use of the engine) for decades. They resurface today and I also like to buy them. With No.1. cylinder they develop power comparable to Black Widows.

You may have seen my Quickie 100 flight video with a 190 producing brute performance in its nose.

Here is my DIY mount I made 45 years ago with a plier for my oldest 190 (that now powers the Quickie in the background):

Still ticking!!! Been running assorted engines while I wait for some low humidity to allow me to shoot some white base coat on Navigator and the Skylark.

and yes...the cameras are standing-by!
