What I'm asking is will CA kick if you remove the oxygen?

If that Tee Dee engine in the Cox stuff is good it'll be a super bargain for someone!
I'll post about it on the Cox forum.

That's a great price - I'll be very interested to hear more about how it performs.

What was the reason you had to sign for the first delivery?

Please let us know if any issues develop with this castor.  I have a supply of castor from Sig that will last a while.  If the castor you bought is working then I may get my next order from Bulk Apothecary.

My cost per gallon (5/22, 50-50 oil) right now is about $13 a gallon.  The cheaper castor would certainly reduce that.  I get nitro and methanol from local automotive performance shops.  Local hobby shops have fuel priced at $18-$20 a gallon, sometimes over $20 a gallon.

I have been getting the oil, both castor and synthetic, from Sig.  Sig had the best price I could find for oil.  Much better price than getting castor or synthetic oil from local retail outlets, such as motorcycle shops.

I doubt Valentine would release a non-functioning engine in any form. 

I doubt it runs.  Both cylinders would need to be very near the same timing or it won't draw in enough fuel.  The offset of the cylinders is pretty small for this to work out.

The way I mix fuel it brings my cost per gallon below $10.00.
Motorman, check your tracking orders I had to sign for my first gallon. I told them to delete that from the second order.

eBay buyers - those who collect are gradually evolving to the kids of the 60s and 70s who owned small displacement engines in their Cox , Wen-Mac and other marques model airplanes and tether cars. Some owned them in gas R/C cars and trucks. These are getting the attention now. Madwell 49s ? Old guys stuff. Unfortunate.
Witness lower bids on Anderson Spitfire 60 and 65 and Super Cyclones.
I'm caught in the middle.
Now, I'll sit by and wait for a Dooling 61. Perfect n.i.b. and excellent were bringing 1K just a few  years back. They're down 30% and dropping ; albeit at a slower pace.

Great info, Guys - thanks for your input.
Oh well, someone will get a nice Madewell.
Profits go to the museum no matter what.

For what it's worth, I've already raised over $70,000.00!

Excellent Sir !!!!

Thanks for the story and suggestions, Matt. I have decided already to carry the flaps through the fuselage, since I don't trust myself to get them on right otherwise (never having built a Flite Streak or Peacemaker. I'm getting the idea that my choice of vintage engine won't quite cut it. The club guys say that if I use a .15, it should be modern. Oh, well. I have a little time to see to that. I got the main wing structure done today.
