Looking for parts for old engines

The last time I flew a powered airplane was 20+ years ago. When I was a young teen I flew control line then I got into RC power then RC gliders. I haven't flown anything in 10+ years.

My son is now getting old enough so I have been reading about RC planes, helis and such. I came across an old box of parts and I have 3 radios, some servos, and a couple of receivers. How do I know if any of this stuff is legal to use?

My next questions are... I found my old Cox Black Widow (used back in my CL days but also for my glider) and it is without a glow plug. Do they still make glow plugs for these motors? Do you know where I can get one?

I also came across a Fox .45 with a broken muffler. Are parts still available for these motors?

Thanks

http://tinyurl.com/2us9xh Here is a link for an adapter to use a regular glow plug on the cox engine. Cox glow plugs are unobtainable now.

Fox has stopped making parts for some of their engines. http://www.foxmanufacturing.com/ Here is the link to their page. You may find what your looking for.
