Golden Bee Dc49d010

Recently bought this Golden Bee to replace the Pretty Bee that’s in my avatar that I gifted to my son… Wanted something sparkly …

When I got it, It had a PT-19 type rubber prop spinner and the little cast aluminum exhaust collector that I think is more common to car engines…. It also had a thick wall
#2 cylinder…. Totally disassembled and cleaned…I had a thin wall #2 cly and piston that seemed more appropriate for the bottom end with tapered front and small intake backplate (.062), At least to me…. Had one pretty nice “W” style head so it went on as well ….I’ve had several styles of Cox engines over the years but this is the first GB….We’ll give ‘er a run one of these days

Nice one Robert. Looks to have no screwdriver marks on the fuel tank or starter spring scars on the case. Also has the traditional black drive washer that you see on most but not all Golden Bees.

The Golden Bee, a favorite of mine.

I'm not 100% certain of the chronological date changes that have occurred for these engines. I just generally associate the black drive washer as Bob mentions as being the early examples. The large knob needle valve which I prefer is also a indicator. That being said, I would think the thin wall cylinder is also a trademark of the earliest examples. What I've discovered with my collection. I'm thinking I have at least 10 of them is that the 70's examples had the thicker wall nose on the case whereas the early examples utilized the swooping narrow nose.

In addition to the the eye catching changes were the internal changes. Some of my later examples came with dual bypass porting similar to the Black Widow where the earlier versions used single ported Babe Bee cylinders. I know Roddie also posted the internal venturi differences. I've noted that myself as I have just the tanks and visibly the inlet openings are significant in size.

In my photo, the one in the back I purchased around 1976 (sophomore in high school).
The one in the front, my dad got it for me, back around in 1968 (9yrs old) and it was on my Carl Goldberg's Swordman.
The Baby Bee I had was on my Carl Goldberg Li'l Wizard.

Loved those Carl Goldberg u-control kits.
