Default NOS "clear" plastic back plate for Cox engines?

Not heard or seen one of these before.
Can anyone enlighten me on this?

I wish the picture were showed more detail. I don't see the mounting lugs or maybe the lighting is bad. Seller answers a question about this further down.

I don't believe it is an engine part, it is a RTF airplane part.

I've seen that part before. Don't think it is a Cox. Shaking the beans and cobwebs and chicken bones ... Might be K&B .035.. NOS doesn't usually come with a piece of used fuel tubing.

I was thinking the same thing, still have never seen one that I recall, anywhere.

At least someone that may have seen seen it before... I also don't think it is Cox but I could very well be wrong, it just doesn't look like Cox somehow. As for the tubing, Yeah it does look used!

Either that or maybe a fuel tank...

Is that maybe for one of the .020 powered helicopters?

That parts is for a K&B engine not a Cox. It is the tank backplate. The guy has the part upside down in the picture but you can see the the needle valve insert if you look close enough. The used fuel line doesn't really belong to this part nor the 2 fuel line springs that are laying across the backplate.

Later,
Tim

It is K&B .035 or .049? That is now the question.

Thanks guys. I was sure (well pretty) sure it wasn't Cox. It dang sure ain't clear. Translucent but not clear.

That K&B tank was used on their 049 and 060. The engines were used in the Aurora line of RTF planes and sold seperately for about $4.95 in the early 60's.
