Default Arden .199 questions !

I picked up an Arden .199 engine this past weekend and I need the help of you (old ) experts out there !

1. How can the magnesium finish be restored on this engine. it appears to have alot of corrosion/oxidation on it .

2. Where can parts such as clear plastic tanks be purchased ? I assume that they are no longer produced , but is there a repro seller out there anywhere ?

3. Are special wrenches needed to dissassemble the engine ? It appears to have a head/cylinder assembly similar to a Cox engine , but no slots to engage the wrench tabs .

Would anyone consider providing a copy of the instruction sheet or exploded view of this engine ?

Any and all ideas or suggestions would be appreciated .

The price was right so adding to my investment would be worthwhile .

Contact me at : [email protected] if you want .

Thanks and what a great network !
