Here is another, this one is ringed and 20 + years old. I bought it from the President of the RC Club at Andrews AFB. He was selling it at the big RC Flea Market in Eastern Pa. Lebanon, Pa. I think.

The ABC Fox Eagles are on the rarer side. Not something you see very often, no doubt.

Nice Dustbin muffler, who makes that one?

That is made by MVVS for the .61, .77 and .91. I got it from Pe' Reivers or Dar, I forget which. I just swapped the m4 bolts for 6x32's and it bolts right on. They have a neat sound unlike any other.

I remember when those first came out. Ugly as hell, but very powerful in their day.

Duke's idea was function over form, no doubt. I'm a "new" kid on the block, but I can see past the ugly.

Broken Wings - before you run that beast, would you be willing to snap a photo of the combustion chamber side of the head button and post it?
I'd rather not needlessly disassemble it.

The Owners Manual/Sheet has the date Jan. 1990 and there's an addendum or "Updated Carburetor Instructions" dated April, 1991... 23 years old and never run.

I'd have no problem doing it if the factory had installed Socket Head Cap Screws.

They're Cheese Head.

According to the instructions that came with the engine, Fox lists two Proto screw drivers and their part numbers. They warn that some screw drivers fit the recess so poorly that they'll cam out the head of the screw.

For this same reason, I use JIS screw drivers on JIS screws.

There are plenty of pictures of head buttons over on the other forum.

I don't bother with "the other forum".

I'll recant my request as it was not realistic.

WOW! that didn't take long....(Smiles)

Quote:
I noticed on the site, RCU, moderated by the technically inept, that you are asking that poor feckless fool to pull the head off his engine.
Perhaps I can shed some light on the subject. The engine he has is an early Eagle IV. As such the head is most likely the one I showed you earlier. That is it has a very large flat squish band with the dome formed by a 5/8 full radius (ball mill) cutter. Do you want a set of drawing to copy this configuration? This head is not as bad as the earlier but similarly shaped head found on the Eagle III with its 1/2" full radius (ball mill) cutter. End Quote....

Tell him that we're all happy for him.

Thought you were referring to RCG.

Better be careful... It's faux pas to bring up stuff said by former members around here. Besides that, I don't think it was fair to throw that at me.


I asked a question in hopes of learning something... Boy did I ever. Thanks!

John, the first thing I do with a Fox engine is change the junk screws for Micro Fastener's socket head screws. I do have an ABC .74.

Tim, you can ask anything. You offer a lot to RCU. There was an recent incident, probably the one you are referring to, where bogus information was being funneled back into RCU from a banned member. He was banned and therefore so were his newer posts from other sites. I checked on this and there were a few discussions about deleting that material. Some of the advice he gave could lead to problems if other members believed the nonsense, regardless of his refutable claims of expertise.

The irrational rage and vicious name calling without provocation about BW offers a glimpse of the problem we had with this person. It ain't happening here anymore.
