    Fox 35

    I was talking to a guy at work about flying and he said he had an engine to give me. The only thing i know about it is that it says fox 35 on the side and it appears to me to be a control line engine. Anybody have any interest or use for this engine? bc i will never use it. It has pretty good compression and looks to be in good shape. Ill try to add some pictures later my ipad doesnt let me add any.

    I'll be happy to take that paperweight off your hands.
    Honestly, you have one of the best or at least best known of the control line engines and can get a decent price on Ebay.
    But I *do* have a plane almost finished that could use it....

    Yep, that is a Fox.35, the classic stunt engine. Get yourself a SIG Twister kit and a set of 60' lines and go have some grass roots stunt flyingfun. C/L rocks.

    RE: Fox 35

    First thing to do is remove the head and reinstall it properly. I doubt it will turn over as it is right now.[:@]

    RE: Fox 35

    What contolliner said. With the head that way you might get $10. That is an early model, early 1950's, which makes it more or less valuable depending. Check the competed auctions on eBay to get an idea of price.

    RE: Fox 35

    Jim, I'd have placed it a bit later: late 50's-early 60's? ...Splined prop driver... ...May also have cylinder exhaust opening narrower than the stack.

    To A2Helos, just a check list: The piston has a low "fence" (baffle) across its top that goes on the side opposite the exhaust port. The head should have a groove to match the baffle. With those set right, the head fins run front to back, not angled.

    A positive - looks like the head bolts were changed to Allen heads. Much easier to work with than the Phillips (or Reed&Prince?) originals.

    A2H, luck!

    I received the engine today in good shape and hope to have it in the air in my Mustang in a couple of months. Thanks for everything!
