newbie questions

Post  unclemoon on Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:56 pm

All this stuff and more was left by my parents which we just found lately in storage. most was my dads but I recognize some of it as mine also. my sons started to sell it on ebay. but after finding this site we stopped and now we are going to start playing with some of it asap.

We have some planes and cars I,ll get pictures of them also. we bought some fuel on line and we are going to go out today and try some of them. but what we have like in these pictures we really don't know much about?

My sons are taking more pictures of the engines to post so we can find out what size etc.

This looks like this is some thing interesting enough to get my kids outdoors away from those stupid electronic games finally.
Thank You for this great site!

LOTS of good parts there! Cylinders, pistons, backplates, screws, tank bowls, crankcases... good stuff. If you need some help identifying those parts, there are great diagrams in most of the engine manuals and service parts manuals. https://www.coxengineforum.com/h24-instruction-sheets

Welcome!! There is plenty of info here to be searched through in older posts etc. and quite a few folks here are pretty knowledgable as well as experienced in most of what you`ll be getting into from what I have seen in your pics.

Yes this really looks fun, and we just started up a old airplane looks to be like a WWII design but we need to figure out the line and give it a try tomorrow. the others are really gummed up and need cleaning. and we will be running a couple little cars soon also. my sons will do some videos that we should be able to post also.

And people say I posted a picture of the "motherload" with my parents attic!

I see car and plane stuff there. I take it you had a good time with this before, and there is no reason to not enjoy it again. Most of what I see is in good shape, may need cleaned. I can almost guarantee that the reeds are gummed in place, so you need to soak the engines in some denatured alcohol overnight, then take the back off and wipe them out, remove the reed and clean too. After cleaning remember to oil them.

You probably will need new gaskets for reassembly, but might get lucky.

Either of these vendors can provide gaskets (and other parts) as needed if you don't have them in the box already. I expect you have more than you think in there.

That tackle box is a something I hope to find someday at a swap meet. Lots of good parts there to build up a couple of babe bees and have some fun.

newbie questions

Post  unclemoon on Sat Feb 09, 2013 10:07 pm

Thanks PKRANKOW, We,ll try soaking every thing we are going to use tonight like you recommended.

We did clean the little dunebuggy motor this morning and reassemble it and got lucky because it started right up.

We just used a little mixture of the glow fuel we bought and some good old WD40 to clean it up. my sons love it letting the little dunebuggy go through a mellow dirt field hitting small bumps launching it up abit in the air lol!

It took us only a while to get the hang of adjusting the needle to get it started then readjusting it until it screamed. oh and we primed it every time or it wouldn't start? I barely remembered that from doing it as a kid. but if you guys have any suggestions for a simpler or better way to get it started?

We,ll try our old plane hopefully tomorrow since we just cleaned a .049 motor for it. I,ll soak the motors and parts tonight from one Testors Indy racer car and a proprod to try this next week. lots of fun thanks you guys this will be good bonding with my sons and get them out of the house hopefully!
Thanks Again!
