If I recall correctly, this engine used the small 'two-ninety' style plastic backplate with a flywheel/gear on the front of the shaft. It also had a special type of throttle sleeve.

A complete, new engine will only be found in terms of new old stock parts with the exception of the glow head, piston, and maybe the cylinder.

Cox Pinto question Empty Cox Pinto question

Post  Ken Cook Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:36 pm

Hello Bernie, I had several cars/dragsters. I wish I saved all of them to be honest. One thing I did manage was to rescue and successfully run was a dragster a few months ago. I've owned the car for over 30 years and to see it run once again was great. Again, I have you to thank for that. My engine to my disbelief the engine has a single ported #2 Bee cylinder. I had saved some of the engines and again all single ported. I did however swap the cylinder to a dual ported cylinder. On 35% this is turning and burning. I assume when making reference to the 290 backplate that would be the same as the postage stamp backplate? I have noticed that these engines from my cars all have fine threaded needle valves. Some being the aluminum while others brass all in the short style. I assume what makes these engines really turn up is the fact that the load apparently is lighter using the flywheel and wheels vs a prop? Shawn

Unfortunately I know almost nothing about Cox cars but some members on this forum have great knowledge of the subject and would be better suited to answering your questions.

Hi Bernie,

Sorry, just noticed your post.

Shawn is correct, according to Dale Kirn's notes it's a single port (190-5) engine, the same as used on the Vega and Eagle.
