Shocked 1975 Fox 40 BB RC

Post  ian1954 on Sat Dec 13, 2014 6:47 am



I believe that this is Schneurle ported and the bump on the bypass side indicates the 3rd port.

I have not run this one yet, it is still not what I would consider clean. It had been ploughed into very sticky clay soil and left for many years. No rust but a seized engine beyond belief. Clay and castor make a very nice cement.

This engine, after superficial cleaning with a hard plastic scraper spent 3 weeks in Hoppes No 9 before the crevices could be cleaned. The piston and crankshaft are now free (I have used a rocking motion) but will not turn it over until it has been stripped.

Wow, Ian that's a nice looking engine. Rather ironic, I just bought one just like it and was asking for help to identify it over on RCU and was informed that it was a Fox. I'll post some pics when I get back to my PC.

I've not run one of those Ian, from what I have heard they are ok. I gravitated toward the later version with the streamlined case and cast carb assy.

Those bolt on carbs like to remove themselves upon impact taking the case with it. The later versions develop really good power and when worked over provide a top notch stunt run. Ones like yours may as well, just never tried.

I've posted this before, but here is a later version modified for stunt. I have 3 of these as well as a .29 that shares the same case. They are my go to engines before anything else. I hate to say it, but when worked they are much more refined than a .35 stunt engine.

I remember at the Nats meeting Lew, and had heard tons of good stuff about them. His reworked FP's were nice, but the Fox .40 was legendary!
