Happy Three "new" engines

Post  Aero on Sun Aug 17, 2014 10:59 am

Picked up some eBay engines last week. All three were in the same auction. A WenMac 049 MKII, A Cox Pee Wee 020, and a Cox Baby Bee 049.

I have never owned any other small engines other than Cox or McCoy, so when I saw the WenMac I put a bid on it. I have been wanting to pick up a few older engines other than Cox, and I thought this one would be a good start. I want them for flying, not for collecting. Thought it would be neat to keep some of the old iron.... and aluminum flying. Very Happy 

The WenMac 049 MKII is neat. It's what I wanted from the auction most of all. Getting the others was a bonus. It is in pretty good shape. I'm going to give it a bit of fuel and try to run it today.

This is my first Cox 020 since I was about 10. I need to order a few parts for the 020. Props, props screws and washers. It has screwdriver scrapes on the tank and some dings, but it has good compression and feels smooth when its turned over.

The Cox 049 included in the action was nice because, well, you cant have enough of them right? This one however must have been a barn find. The seller WIRE BRUSHED the entire engine. I have my first "textured" Cox 049. It has compression, so there is some hope! Just can't get the head or cylinder loose yet.

I tried to post a pic, but I'm too new. I'll post pic later.

Allen have you soaked the 049 you cant get the hd/cyl. off of ? I suggest hobbies no.9 for a couple hrs. or so ..... get you a piece of heater hose 3/4" ID. and slip it over the cyl. so you can put your I use channel locks on it without damaging the fins , chuck the cnk case up in a vise (lightly) just enough to keep from moveing on you with a rag around it  Very Happy  Works for me ! You can that Rusty were I got the Idea from.  Smile Babe Bee .049  Getback

I think you mean Hoppe's no 9, right? Had not thought of using that product.

I did get the head off the cylinder! Waiting for the cylinder to loosen.....
