There is not a whole lot of info about Foxes on the internet. Well, there is, but not a lot of historical info. I have seen one of those in person, just not in action. Ken Cook has a good bit of knowledge about Fox engines. Maybe he can chime in.

These engines actually run quite fast. I wouldn't recommend them for  control line stunt  useage. Same typical Fox technology iron piston steel leadalloy sleeve.  This  engine though used a muffler quite desired by us Fox .35 users. With a little modifications the muffler could be made to actually work. This Fox is known as the "Sport" .36 and they were also made as a .29. The .29's had the case and cranks stamped indicating .29 due to the .36 having a longer stroke. I feel these came onto the scene a bit late as they arrived in late 1971-72 and people tend to overlook these engines. The Japanese with the OS line was really gaining popularity and Enya was producing some high quality engines equally. I think these Fox's run quite well. Ken

This one does run well. It was a siezed up mess when I got it but hardly used. It is noisy though - keeping a look out for a silencer.

Ian, if you do find a muffler, they were made in 3 different versions and all will fit. If you take notice, the exhaust side of the case has a over and under screw setup which is 2-56 threads above and below the cutout. Don't use those screws to hold the muffler on. THe muffler itself has casting ears on it equally to utilize those holes. One, it doesn't retain the weight of the muffler and vibration will rapidly make it fall off, the other is the liner is directly behind those holes and if the screws touch the liner it will deform it instantly. Here is one currently on Ebay with the proper muffler. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NICE-FOX-35-CONTROL-LINE-OR-FREE-FLIGHT-ENGINE-WITH-MUFFLER-IN-GOOD-SHAPE-/390662443337?pt=Radio_Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5af54bd149 Ken

Yeah I have been eyeing that one for a while Ken. I only want it for the muffler. I can't justify the money when I can spend $50 for a new Fox
