They are NOT GAS engines. The top one is a Cox glow engine and the bottom one looks like a DC diesel.

Thanks. Wonder if the bottom one is a DC Merlin as it has 6 cooling fins?

It probably did never have a throttle valve, just a Needle valve.

Classifieds in forums like this one, or others like RCGroups, or model diesel related ones.
