Yep, its a Cub .060 or .058 (depending on what literature you're reading) made for the Comet plastic RTF's, in the early 60's. The Cub can use a Cox glowhead and if the cylinder is a good fit, should be a pretty good runner and out turn the Golden Bee.

Really? I was planing on selling it but I might play with it for awhile first.

The last of the Cubs, the .060 'reedie' were a pretty good engine, rumor has it Bill Atwood designed the reed intake. The problem with the Herkimer Cubs was quality control, you might get one good one for every 2-3 poor ones. With the long needle, its likely it was made for a TriPacer.
