Cox throttle/muffler sleeve

I have a new unsed one for a .049, that I bought back in the '80's, and a guy asked if I wanted to sell it, and how much do I want for it. I have no idea what the screws that come with it are for.

Could you tell what it's worth. I don't know what to tell him.

Thanks, Pat

Cox international has the throttle ring for .049/.051 which is similar to the old Ace model:

To give you an idea of the value,don't know what these screws are for!

Not even Cox parts ... something from China.

I think the throttle sleeve with the silicon muffler cover were selling for around $10 to $15 on Ebay a while back. But since Cox started selling new ones, the demand has been less. So maybe $10 for someone wanting original parts for a restoration.

Toys,

I would love to own the item for $20 if you are willing to sell it to me.

Looks like a service replacement part for the die cast predecessor of the Cox Dragonfly.The silicon ring ring provides the silencer function while the adjustable metal ring provides the throttle. FWIW

The screws and split washers do not belong to the muffler kit. Only the muffler (with silicone part), the circlip and the smaller metal ring. The small ring is used to raise the ventury and make room for the muffler.

Sell it to Xena so that we can all get a new production item...

That ring with the rubber lip is similar to the one the RC Bee came with. There are a bunch of people that just need the lip. Ask here http://coxengineforum.forumakers.com/

Bernie, I sent you a e-mail.

I know that the screws are not for the throttle, but they came with it in the bag. I bought this so long ago, I don't know which car, plane or boat I got it for, or if I just bought it to use.
I done alot of that since the early 60's. Use to go up to the local drug store on my bike, and buy all my Cox stuff there. Go to Jolly's to get the big stuff. McCoy & Fox engines, and uc/rc kits! And watch "Hobby Craft flying models" on saturday morning TV! Always started the show with a trainer on floats taking off, and ended with it landing back on the water. Ahh...The old days!

Today. the nearest lhs is 45 miles away (I have more than the 3 around here, and I've sold most of my stuff) and mail ordering my parts is the only real way to get my parts any more.

I replied to your email Pat.

I'll have a look at the thing and see if I can clone it at reasonable pricing.

We looked at making the Cox OEM muffler but pricing was too high ($10).

Which parts are from China? The screws....
I believe the silicone "Fart Ring" came with the Medalion.. Didn't know it was for the TD .049. Isn't the C clip to hold it on and is the control rod fitted into a hole in the tang on the grey part

The snap ring is where you connect a throttle pushrod to. The snap ring has two small holes for the pushrod. You can open the snap ring and rotate it on the sleeve to get the throttle to work just right. The sleeve has two rectangular holes in it to match the exhaust port on the engine cylinder. The silicon rubber ring is the muffler. When the engine is running the rubber ring bulges out and lets the exhaust escape around the inner edges. it actually works quite well.

Got the contraption.

It is actually the muffler for the RC Bee from the 70's.

I did not know that either until my colleague Matt enlightened ,e
