Cool
ignition treasures

Here are a few motors I received in the mail today, 4 ignition and one glow.
The Brown Jr 60 I believe is on the original mounting beams with original coil, condenser and also a nice hand carved prop.
The Webra T4 80 is very nice with limited run time.

Brown looks in good shape. The Atwoods and the Orwick can be good runners if you need power.

I recently found a Brown Junior box in an antique shop, logo is visable on both sides but much better on one, theres a label on the lid thats been mostly peeled off, and a corner of the lid is gone. Its in good shape for a 75 year old box though! It would be nice to display with the engine....25.00 shipped?

OK Bill; You have me drooling again. I have a couple of Atwoods, a Champion, and a Super Champion. Both are good runners. I also have a great running Orwick, and they do make power. No Brown Jr. though. Pout Pout. Maybe some day I will get one. I have to many sparkers now if that is possible.

Never can have too many Jim any doubles you would like to part with??
I have decided to go ahead and start collecting these motors but in order to keep inventory down I am only purchasing engines which are 100% complete and original. Don't really care which brand or maker or size.
I have never flown a sparker in a model as of yet but plan to in the near future Wonderful little motors and very interesting.

Just be sure to RETARD the spark before you attempt to start, else there may be a very bad kickback.

Bill, not the first, and not the last...unless you put your hands in your pockets.
Too bad Don Scott isn't still with us. You and he would have had a great time with the old ignition engines. Keep your eye out for a McCoy .49 crank case.

I'm currently looking for a McCoy 60 on ignition John. My hands seem to always be in my pockets.........removing more funds
Model engines are going to be the death of me but I'm really enjoying the ride.
Couple of years of ignitions and then maybe I'll go deisel I'll know where to go for info on them.

Go diesel buddy...you'll smell like an F350, you'll pull props that will have the e-power guys scratching their heads..(10-4 on a .19..how's he doin' THAT, Charlie??!!), and you can buzz around on next to nothing for fuel..
Cash
PS..did I tell you that you'll smell? Might keep you out of honey-dos..don't want to do laundry while smelling like a truck stop..

Oh yeah..one other thing. Diesels, at least the few I've messed with, are pretty quiet. My PAW .15 with muffler at full chat is just a bit louder than my VT-21, which is just about the quietest glow engine in captivity..or at least, in my collection. Plus, you'll freak out guys who have NEVER seen or heard of a diesel..(Aw shoot, now he's got it started with no glow driver..that ain't right..)

If you need any help getting the ignition engines flying just shout. I am no expert but have been running them for around 40 years if that counts.
I do have the skinny on a slick ignition system setup that weighs in with coil, solid state module and batteries at 3.8 oz and has zero as in none,zip,nada,zilch radio interference.

All the above can be yours for the low low price of $9.99 if you act now. But wait!! There's more, call in the next five minutes and get a free set of kitchen knives......errrrrr......guess...after the onion thing y'all don't be wanting any knives...huh??
