Cox .049 RC Cruiser Glow Engine

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 made of plastic and incorporates the needle valve and the intake pipe from the small carb which controls the airflow to the engine, 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 plastic 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 designs.

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.

If I want to add external Fuel tank, do I need the external fuel tank and fuel line only? Or is there any conversion part I must use? Thanks

Do these have their own fuel tank or run of an external tank thanks.

You will need an external tank. Converting an old 35mm film can works very well.

Hello Ethan! Interested in what you have to say about Cox Glow Heads. What is a Merlin Head Clamp? Is it the Head from a Merlin engine? Are you fitting a glow plug from a Merlin engine? I'm pretty sure the thread on the Cox is some sort of American variety, so not universal? So how do you change the Head. I imagine you can still get the Plug for the Merlin but would like more details please as I know the Cox Plugs are prone to blowing and are difficult to get. I know that people convert the Cox to Diesel by drilling out the plug but I want to retain the Cox Glow. (the screaming cat). Phil

What I am talking about are Merlin Glow Plugs made by Merlin Glow Plugs, not from a Merlin engine(not sure what it is). A Merlin head clamp is much like the Norvel head clamp/plug set up. For a Cox engine you can use the Cox glow head, Norvel Clamp/insert and the Merlin clamp/insert. If you are looking for performance I would stay away from any of the heads that use a standard RC plug on a Cox engine. They seal at the top of the plug and cause a massive drop in compression and power.
