#EN03 Cox .049 Surestart Glow Engine Ultimate Combo


For those of you who have been in the hobby for a while the name "Cox" will be
no stranger. Many of us started into the hobby with a Cox plastic control line
model and many RCers have used the venerable Cox .049 in various forms to
power small aircraft, gliders and even helicopters.

Cox engines use a hardened, formed-steel piston which runs in a softer steel
cylinder, this does mean however that they require a reasonable
break-in time before they get really consistent but this does pay of in the
long run with a engine that will go on for years and years. These engines
have the typical Cox extruded crankcase, rear mylar reed valve, counter
weighted crankshaft with pressed on aluminum drive washer. The
backplate is a moulded plastic and incorporates the needle valve assembly and
filtered air intake, it also acts as the radial mount for mounting the
engine. The conrod is Cox's traditional captured ball and socket link to
the steel piston and the one piece machined steel cylinder has bypass
ports and slots for the exhaust. Due to this engine having a reed valve
fitted between the backplate and the crankcase this will allow the engine
to run either clockwise or counter-clockwise, this is determined in which
direction you flick it to start, so its great for normal tractor and
pusher designed models (please note that the Surestart will need to be
removed to run the engine counter-clockwise). The Cox .049 Surestart
engine has been developed by Cox to be really easy to start and comes
complete with a longer lasting brass drive -plate. This ultimate combo
includes the "Surestart" technology for even easier starting, plastic
spinner, propeller and mini fuel tank which will give between 45-60secs
run time.

Enjoy the fun and excitement of running a small glow engine for a relatively
low price and for those of us who remember them from years ago, re-live a
little bit of your childhood.

NB: Cox glow engines have a glowhead that requires a 1.2-1.5v power source, do
not use anything with a higher voltage or it will blow the element,
also best to use fuel with a nitro content of 20% or more.
