I've looked but may have overlooked a topic, but....

I picked up several Cox engines at a garage sale. Some turn over but others don't. They look OK so I'm assuming the problem is gummed up lubricant especially as these are old enough and were run on castor. I'm pretty sure at least one is an .049 but there is one smaller and another larger. The largest one is beam mounted and no fuel tank. The smaller ones have a rear tank of plastic. How can I identify what I have?

Would posting pictures help to get an answer?

And what's the best way to loosen these engines up.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

Pictures would be the best source to help you identify. There is a great group here to help with almost any Cox (and other) engine need!

Nova,

It’s all guesswork unless we can see a picture.

You probably have a TD .010 or .020 with a plastic tank. Larger Beam mounts are TD’s and standard bee engines have the integral tank.

You can’t post pictures right away, but if you need help now shoot me a PM and I can send you my email.

Welcome,

Ron
