Scored my first no mounting hole horseshoe backplate. The Cox engine handbook mentions it and that very few were made. Doesn’t even have a picture of one. Top engine in the first pic. Pic 5 has a close up.

That mount plate is a part of Fokker Triplane, however I don't know how it can be mounted on model, perhaps it slides into a rail.

I reckon I have one of those in my stuff. I'll have to dig it out. I seem to recall that it may have the two lower holes rather than none.

Good on you, Jason.
I remember discovering my first. Kinda goes
hand in hand with the postage stamp backplate
without the tabs on the sides.

I see that the Cox Fokker DR1 model's engine came with the protective steel tab that covered the engines' exhaust-port and had a mounting-flange that mirrored the crankcase gasket. I guess it was a later effort (following the mesh screen?) to prevent burns to the fingers whilst tuning the engine.

Roddie, Cox actually made 3 different height deflectors. I
guess it had to do with exhaust porting, per the Daniels/Sitter
handbook. Huh... It took me a while to find the correct one for
a Spook restore.
Oh yeah, the "Radiator Clamp" deflector too.

Going to show my ignorance here, if it’s a Fokker engine how can it be rare? Was it changed somehow or was it just a short run in the Fokker.

Glad you got it though!

6000 horseshoe backplates without mounting holes were made before switching to the version with holes. Not rare but hard to find. Kinda like windup drive plate engines.
