While in Albert lea Mn, me and my great aunt "woody" went to an antique store and found a booth with 2 gas powered model and one tether plane engine. He had the tether plane engine and a tether car engine marked together for $55 but I got him down to $45 because thats all I had and I am on vacation from Denver Colorado. any way here is what I got....

Thanks Smile

Neat find. The Testors Stunt engines usually don't bring too much on Fee Bay. I got a new one a few years ago in a BIN for $15.00 and I think the most I've seen one go for is about $35.00 new in package and the car kits go for about $30.00 so you got a good deal for $45.00.  The Testors .049's run great on standard 15% airplane fuel and are super easy to tune. You should build the car, mount that engine on it and have fun! Thumbs Up

The Junior Ace sells for $25. I am not sure about the Testor Engine. I bought one several years ago for $20 NIB, however, it was a little different than that one. Is that one the all plastic version?

As displayed in the box you are looking at the bottom. The "Testors 8000" was designed for CL flying. You mount it with the cylinder pointing to the outside of the circle. You will be pleasantly surprised at the power this engine has. It should get some rich break-in runs.

Good luck with it. I have several and like them.

Thanks George Smile
I have started construction of the peewee racer last night, I am in the painting stage but I have ran out of fuel proof paint and the lhs is closed tomorrow so maybe more progress on that build in a couple days. Maybe I will get to breaking in the engine on monday Smile

As the all plastic version of the motor, I believe it has a special place in the history of 1/2a engines. I read a nice article about it on line several years ago. Apparently they were good motors. Congratulations on the find. Pretty neat.

That engine has gone up a little the last several years, 30-35 plus shipping seems to be the going rate.

Your tether car looks like a pusher. If so you will need a reverse pitch prop because the Testors will not run backwards. It has a great starter mechanism...turn it one full turn clockwise and release. Since it is self engaging it won't run backwards.

Luckily I purchased about 4 white tornado reverse pitch props for .049's about a year ago just out of impulse, I have had no need what so ever for them until now Smile

Well I found one of the props mentioned before, I have to search out in my prop stash some more later. This engine has a pretty cool prop that I have never seen before

I believe that is a Testors prop made specifically for the Testors 8000. I have never seen them elsewhere.

BTW I believe the "8000" comes from .8cc = .049 ci.
