Default Testor's McCoy .049 Engine

Are there any fans of the Testor's McCoy .049 engine still? I have a near new one currently listed in the Marketplace with Testors" Original 6x3" Prop and Spinner.

Here is a link to a You Tube Video with another modeler running his engine, demonstrating how they are user friendly and very consistent runners.

Low power and heavy due to the built on starter. But they start super easily and run well enough to fly a model. Not the sort you want to put into anything needing high performance. But for a casual sport flying model with moderate performance? I lovely little mill for that sort of thing. I've got two of them. Haven't used either in years but I won't get rid of them due to the nice memories of the models that did use them. That and my plan to make a Veco Dakota bipe for free flight flying at the big meets down in Oregon in their time target Dakota event.

Warning. Be sure the lower radial lug is still intact. I managed to snap one off and it broke away in a manner that resulted in a case leak due to the broken away part having part of the rear cover's gasket seat. I ended up using silicon gasket glue instead of the paper gasket. But it's annoying and means that if I have to remove the cover it needs to be fully cleaned and re-glued.
