What a supprize!!!

Post  TDbandit on Sun Jul 26, 2015 7:50 pm

I don't know exactly where to post this but since it DOES have cox engines in it I'll put it here lol
Anyway today I got  call from one of my flying buds and asked to come over that he wanted to show me some stuff so I headed over to his place. what it turned out to be was that he wanted to give me some stuff that he didn't need anymore and off loaded some old kits to me which I will post later but the cream of the crop was this.. Observe!!!!

What i ended up with was a complete sig buster with a Fox .15 and a small box of engines!!! needless to say I was very surprised as to what was there!!
Here's the first pic showing the buster and box of goodies..

And now a closer look at the box!

And now a full look at the box's residents!
All the engines were a big shocker but the biggest shock was the NIB TD .010. When I saw the engine I had to make sure he knew that it was in there and he said yes he did and that he knew of it's value in the box but he didn't need the money so he wanted it to go to someone that could make use of it and he knew of me being the Cox maniac at the field so he wanted it to go to me. The only stipulation was that he wanted it to be used for it's purpose and not sit on a shelf...I reluctantly said ok so *puts on hard hat awaiting the wrath of the collectors* it's gonna be put in a micro RM however it's gonna be babied!!
There's also a nice TD .051, an OK cub .099, what looks like an Infant, Fox .29, Torpedo special ? and O&R .29 (Both the torpedo and O&R are not gum stuck and have good compression) and of course a parts .010 Broke crank  and Babe Bee .049

And this is not it, he said that there are more that he's giving me including another NIB TD .020 he's just getting them together Enjoy!
Also I could use some help with the O&R, Torpedo special and the I think it's an infant. as well as the Fox .29 which from what I was told needs a P/C set Thanks all
(The bandit is humbled! )

Nice little haul you got there. Those TD .010 engines must be cool to run. As well, I have not ever seen one in person, but they sure do look tiny.

Yeah they are tiny but there mighty! they put out good power for their size, you just got to know what you are doing when you run them (They are fragile). they require a slightly different approach when starting. I really don't want to run this NIB .010 but he wants to see it go and that was part of the deal so it's gonna be run. (Bandit)

I'm fond of the O&R engines. Not powerful at all. Just a neat old engine. Nothing really to be said when dealing with older engines. They were designed to be run on all castor fuels. They fit the same bolt pattern as the Fox.29/35. Duke did this knowing that his engines would more than likely take precedence over the competition. Don't run them too hard as the cylinder can blow off. They're spot welded onto the case and can't be taken apart. Some do have equipment to repair these and I've seen some done but the average person doesn't I would keep it in the 9x6 range.The engine was designed in the late 40's 1948-49.

You got that right especially scoring a NIB TD .010. The TD .051 needs the rod reset lotsa slop will do that probably tomorrow. It's not going to take much to get the buster flying too. It has the angled plug Fox .15 in it. (Bandit)

Yeah i heard about that, looks to have a needle bearing supported crank too. All I got to do is find a NVA for it.
The Torpedo Special, I think may be a .29 too but that's all I know and I may be wrong since i see no markings besides Torpedo Special on the case sides. (Bandit)

Bandit. I don't think that's an Infant (which is .020). I'd say an .049 Torpedo. If it has a shaped prop driver rather than just a washer, and if it uses a regular glow plug, it's an .049

Good haul Bandit, Enjoy!

When you have worn out the .010, just clean it up and display it in the box... Thumbs Up

That .010 is too nice to run. Sad

I'd be willing to trade you 2 of my lightly used red tank .010's for that NIB one. Very Happy Have 2x the fun and save a shelf queen.

I guess if thats the deal you made then your kinda stuck.

Yes it is, I'd much rather put it on a shelf in safe place but....he wants it to run and he's a nice guy with lots of history behind him so I'm gonna do it. He said that he was going to try and run it but he has severe arthritis in his hands and with it's size and since it's a rather delicate engine he didn't want to take a chance at destroying it and after seeing me help another club member who had a .010 (The newer black tank one) on a little pageboy get it started and adjusted properly he decided to give it to me.
So as you said, I'm kinda stuck. (Bandit)
