I think Bob’s engine is a QZ, like mine on page 12 of this thread. Not sure but I think QRC only came with the stunt tank. Or maybe it’s a Babe Bee equipped with the QZ conversion kit minus the silencer. Interesting engines anyway. Collecting these is almost like collecting stamps, always looking for variations and anomalies Smile The engines are more fun than stamps though.

From the COX Model Engine Handbook I figure my Babe Bee has the same detail features as the ECJ#38 dating back to 1956.

I also expected this to have a 3-piece piston, but in fact this has a 2- piece one.

....

I must correct myself..when I managed to undress her today and get the piston out by first unhooking the large rod end from the crankpin (the cylinder did not budge no matter how I heated then froze the crankcase) then pushing the piston up and out from a preheated cylinder (seems to have some taper no matter it is a No2 cylinder) I found a 3-piece piston in my hand:

A bit sloppy balljoint with unwanted gap but I am afraid this cannot be reset like later pistons...the rod is thicker than in later pistons and the reset tool slot does not fit, for one thing..and hammering the rod retainer clamp in the piston does not seem a healthy cure, for another..

Well then you've become a collector whether you intended to or not. Clean her up real purty, make a document style brass plaque and put her in a showcase.

No showcase or brass plaque kind of things Ticomareado, not that I am surprised if real collectors like Dan Sitter keep their engines in such reverence..I will start her up but am concerned whether the sloppy balljoint will last..

Bitchin' .15 !! All it needs is a flywheel, cooling jacket, belt driven water pump and a low rider car to mount it on.

Nice catch Brad..I guess a .15 TeeDee will not lose much power if used with the adaptor head instead of the stock COX glow head?

Thank you gents Thumbs Up , the compression with the 15 is ok needs a
turbo head adapter to add some extra power.

Get ready the Turbo Head adapters for the .049 -.051 have
been batched milled this morning. They will also work with
the Norvel .049 and .06 and the AP .06

Folks can now source the .15 size radial mounts here:

Wow, Brad, that’s a fast looking Tee Dee! Would look great on the nose of a ’60s era FAI free flight competition model Cool  

My latest acquisition is a .15 also. A fellow hobbyist sent me a .15 glowhead a few months ago, unused, and for him unnecessary. A couple of weeks ago he wrote again and told he found the engine for that head. An Olympic no less!

He was reluctant to set a price for it, and suggested a trade if I happened to have an RC ”fixer-upper” or something. I listed what I had, and he got interested in an old-timer model ”Spartan” kit I had laying around. I said I could throw in some cash and he said he could too, so we settled for a trade. He sent me the engine and I sent him the kit. Both of us were happy with trade.

The Olympic looks and feels like it is in very good condition, no sticking, good compression etc. Not a lot of tool marks either. The red anodizing has faded in a weird way, on one side it is like new, and on the other almost gone. I wonder what may have caused it? Parking in sunlight for an extended time, or soaking in something for years?

I have an NIB carb body but no NVA nor venturi. Well, it looks pretty good as it is, and I think I’ll just clean it up a little, oil it lightly and keep it as it is.  

Some pics ”as arrived”:
