Default Cox engines with fuel tanks

Hey guys, the prole back again with another question for the experts.

I was looking for a cox .049/.051 with a fuel tank mount.

I was wondering what the difference is between the:

Texaco
Baby Bee
Golden Bee
Black Widow

They all are .049 and all have a tank mount. What is the deal?

Any favorites, any bricks? this is going to go into a Dynaflite Piece O Cake and the Norvel won't fit in the cowl with the tank mount.

I got a Cox tank mount and have both a .049 and .051 TD, and that fit's OK, should I just go with that?



This might be a question for the Mighty Dickeybird!!!!



Thanks Guys,

As Always,
T -the prole-

Default Cox engines with fuel tanks

Depending on nitro content of fuel, it's been my experience that 15%nitro/castor will yield something like this...

Texaco - 4 to 5.5 minute run... 5 fin glo-head, 8cc tank(no vent) small venturi, dual transfer, twin slit exhaust ports.

Baby Bee - 2.5 to 3.5 minute run, 4 different cylinder types, single transfer/single exhaust, single tranfer/dual exhaust (large), dual transfer/twin slit exhaust, metal or plastic backplate

Golden Bee and Black Widow are the same engine ( at least mine are ) 2.5 to 3= minute run, stunt tank, larger venturi than Baby Bee or Texaco

Venom - 2.5 to 3 minute run if your lucky

Killer Bee - 8cc of fuel, avrg 2.5 minute run

Note: the Venom and Killer Bee ( pre-Estes ) had the high performance "Bullit" crankshaft ( drilled crankpin,scalloped and lightened counterweight )

They all run better with higher nitro fuels...
