The first 2 are O.K. Cub engines, but we can't tell the displacement.

This one is obviously a Spitzer, but of unknown size.

And this one is a complete mystery....

Any info on age, model, etc would be appreciated. He has no plans to sell so value is not needed.  Very Happy

The bottom one is a 1950 K&B 'Torp Junior' .035 (5 fins on glow head) missing the mounting disk on the back.
The Spitzy is a 1951 Mel Anderson Spitzy Senior .045.

In the first and second pic, there are 2 OK cubs, probably .049, and a Cox Baby Bee. The OK cubs should have marking in the casting on the bottom of the crank case. Use a toothbrush and some alcohol or fuel to clean that area and it should say some more.

RATS! You beat me to it...Nice work, Steve! 

P.S.  The #9 on the Spitzy was to make the competition think that Anderson had at least 9 molds.

The first Cub is a .049A and the second is a .049B, the .059/.060 (same engine) has one more fin on cylinder, 9 total, yours has 8.
That .035 has a fairly rare tank, many of those were made for a LA newspaper company as a promo, but I think they later also ended up in production, most .035 you see have the shorter tank.
