Well, a publication of an EZ BEE model airplane appeared in the virtual ads...I asked some questions and finally decided to go in search of it...It's a very nice story.
This model starts in the US, it was in a supermarket.
Gustavo (the seller who acquired it) lived for a few years in the US, since his father was a member of the Argentine Air Force, they sent him there with his family, when Gustavo was about 9 / 10 years old. His father was a Hercules C130 aircraft flight mechanic and on a local ride in the US, they bought the EZ BEE,
Then they moved again to Argentina and here they delivered the model to an aeromodeller who was the one who put it together (assembly).
Some time later, another person trying to start the engine burned out the glow plug and since then, nothing has ever been attempted again.
The EZ BEE model airplane never flew, so it went from transfer to transfer in 30 years, until Gustavo decided to sell it. Here then I appear, hahaha...
I thank Gustavo for his honesty and for his good treatment, since he embarked on a trip from his city and I from my city to meet at a midpoint. Everything was perfect.
Now, with the EZ BEE in my possession, I will have it on the waiting list to recondition whatever is necessary, but, I couldn't wait to clean the engine, I couldn't, hahaha the engine was calling me and I already got to work At least I want to see the engine running!
The story will continue......

A very nice Cox classic Mauricio…. It is amazing that a simple Bee engine can pull the relatively large airplane with authority….. There are a few videos of these on the internet and show the plane’s capabilities…. A graceful, gentle flyer…. Hopefully you may produce a video of yours Babe Bee .049

Okay, so I couldn't wait to reset the engine, a little cleaning and checking.
So, the nylon plate on the fuel tank has cracks in the holes (I don't like nylon plates for this tank design), the tightening system has no stop and is often adjusted as it is disassembled. and assembles the engine, which at some point cracks the spaces for the screws. I tried with a brass antenna tube, and using an electric welder, embedding pieces in each hole, as a way of repairing the cracks, but it didn't help, it still leaks fuel, so I discarded the nylon rear plate.
Another .049 from Cox, lends him his deposit to be able to run and check the operation.
Place an AP cylinder cover with an AP glow plug that I had on hand, (I already told you that the original one from the engine was burned by an operator previously).
Then the engine starts and runs perfectly.
I decide to remove the tank and place a Surestar rear plate, with a Surestar air valve, but without the original rod, the rod in this case is a straight tube of our own manufacture, much shorter in length in aluminum alloy, it works perfect !
So I decided that the original engine of the EZ BEE model will now have a Surestar plate and air valve, which will be another engine destined for the Citabria. For the EZ BEE model airplane then, I will fit a Cox Babe Bee engine that I have in stock.
