Just saw this one and thought will share it with you.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Cox-Parts-281-Cylinder-Piston-Rod-020-RC-Engine-New-Old-Stock-/224669958199?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0

I once bought such a kit and built a 020 TeeDee RC that still waits in its box for a project I should build.

What makes it worth the look and bid is that the kit includes a tapered bore cylinder known to perform a bit better and even longer than non- taper cylinders, in my experience..just look at the piston top stuck in TDC position,  that indicates most probably a tapered bore there..the same kit I had was tapered bore at least.

I used to look at such cylinder piston combos in the bubble pack on ebay to see if the piston is past TDC or not, in an indication of non taper or taper bore...yes, non taper cylinders in bubble packs  may also show the piston sitting below TDC , but taper bore cylinders will never...so at least a 50/50 chance..
