Mc Coy 049

Post  RK Flyer on Wed Nov 11, 2015 10:09 pm

I just bought a Mc Coy 049 with a tank (Cheap) on E bay now I hope someone here can tell a little about them!

Anyway it looks clean & I will add it to my collection of 049's.

McCoy 049

Pictures will have to wait a few days its in the mail!

Its a beam mount & the black plastic tank looks similar to the ones for Tee Dee's, but the engine is mounted on arms from the tank. It has a type of snap starter.

That sounds like a Testors McCoy, usually sold as a "Red Head" .049 when combined with the tank.  Does it look like this?

Not a bad engine.  The starter springs are fragile and you wouldn't want to try to modify it to increase the RPM too much as they can break the rod or crank pin, but they are generally pretty reliable when treated kindly.  The glow head is not commonly available (it doesn't have to be the red version) but can be found fairly frequently N.O.S. on ebay or elsewhere. Any head from the first Wen Mac to use a glow head through to the last of the "Pipe Bomb" Testors engines will work on this engine.  There was some variants.  Some used a thin copper gasket, some a thick alloy and some no gasket at all, but with the correct gasket they will all work.

By the way, if this isn't the type of engine, completely ignore all I just said and I'll crawl back under my rock. lol!

Here's my Goldberg Little Toot CL bipe with the Testors McCoy .049 Red Head:



It is a decent little engine that said, "I could". Leaves

That is a nice looking Toot . I like the yellow and red colors and the smooth rounded corners . One of my favorites and very nicely done .

WoW! What a combo!! I really like the TooT and with the ole Mc Coy up front it's really got the look!

What type of paint did you use on the plane? It's great!!
