Item specifics

Used: An item that has been used previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of ... Read moreabout the condition




This auction is for TWO (2) motors. The image is representative of the model but not the condition.

Cox .049 engine has 1 bypass cylinder, exhaust collector stack, idle adjuster, pull start, taper lock crankshaft / flywheel, delrin knurled knob and a delrin backplate and reed assembly. Crankcase is standard mill finish. The backplate is metal with fuel tank. Some have needle valves, some don't.

THESE ARE USED: We have not cleaned or prepped these units - no guarantee to condition - the batch is AS IS. These are not crashed motors and look in good condition. No dirt clogs but there may be dried oil residue. Most do not turn. In most cases this is due to oils hardening after sitting too long. We have had good success cleaning these with PB Blaster (shoot a little into the top of the cylinder and let it sit for a few hours). Some recommend denatured alcohol and others recommend nitro. Consider this a fun project - and it is, as well as helpful if you want experience rebuilding these simple motors.

THESE MOTORS HAVE HISTORY: According to the COX MODEL ENGINE HANDBOOK (Tim Dannels and Dan Sitter, published by Engine Collectors’ Journal and sold on eBay by engmagswife), this motor was used in the Dune Buggy and Baja car. Production discontinued in 1978.

MORE HISTORY: These motors were part of a conspiracy between Dale Kirn and Lew Mahieu for a project they never brought to completion – time has a way of getting ahead of all of us. They have been in storage in Lew Mahieu’s shop for 9 years and at least that long in Dale Kirn’s. Now we are clearing the shelves and you can own a piece of this history.

WARRANTY: All motors are sold AS IS. No warranty - no returns. Look at our feedback: people tell us they are very pleased and some say the motors were in better condition than expected.
