Fox engines under new ownership


I just noticed that the MECOA website (http://www.mecoa.com) shows that they now own Fox.....does anyone know if MECOA plans to build engines or just sell off old parts? Thanks!

Apparently they are still doing the inventory of what they've got!

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for them to start production.
If they bought parts that would make a complete engine they might assemble some. Maybe.

Kind of what I was thinking... MECOA still hasn't put the Johnson 35 back in production, which they were supposed to do many years ago!

An ex-employee of theirs (Fox Mfg) , Andre, who visits here occasionally, wrote on here that there wasn't / weren't full sets of parts of anything he was interested in when they shut down their hobby shop.

My post has been edited for clarity. Andre worked for Fox in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
