This one says DC Made in England on it diesel motor

This is a chinese diesel motor not sure of the brand name?

This is my second favorite of the bunch, A diesel motor and it has 9.0 and a very small bullet-shaped insignia with a C in the center on it. Check out the square head!

This one is my fav, a .049 O&R motor and still has the box or most of it!

This is a new in the box webra diesel.09

This one has CUB and OK and PAT'D stamped on it, any ideas?

This one says baby spitfire

This one has Mark VIII WEN MAC on it, any ideas?

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

I'm not sure what you mean by help identifying, as you already HAVE ID'ed most of them.

The OK Cub IS an "OK Cub" 0.049, made by Herkimer. As I recall, one of the cool "selling features" is that you could buy it as a kit, put it together, and go fly it. It, along with the Wen Mac 0.049 were standard fare for small control line motors in the late 50's, early 60's. I owned one, flew it till it died. One too many crashes as I recall.

The Wen Mac IS a Wen Mac 0.049, complete with the recoil spring starter. Both of those motors hail from the late 50's, early 1960's. I still remember the perennial Wen Mac 0.049's on sale from America's Hobby Center for $2.49. The Wen Mac was designed by the same fellow who later designed the TeeDee motors for Cox Manufacturing, Bill Atwood.

Surprisingly, the Wen Mac 0.049 is what got me started in modeling in about 1962. One of my older brothers bought one from one of his buddies in school while my dad was stationed on Okinawa. He, I, and another brother spent most of an afternoon trying to get it to run with limited success. I was eight years old, and that cheap motor is responsible for me flying RC helis today. BTW -- when we DID get it to run, it was by no means a powerhouse, or all that reliable.

The "Baby Spitfire" IS a Baby Spitfire, and dates from the late 1940s. Mel Anderson designed it.

The O&R is an O&R -- Ohlsson and Rice.

Webra Diesel -- well, it's a Webra, and it's a diesel.

Thanks Dave.
Some or most of them I had the name of, but I was wondering value or rareness and some of the British ones I had no clue what they were.
And I still would love to find out more about what the square head diesel motor with duel rear exaust is.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Man, that baby spitfire looks tiny. What do you think was the smallest engine made ?

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

That would have been the COX TeeDee 0.010 (0.01 cu. in. displacement).

I bought a new in the package one from a fellow here in Cedar Rapids...

It would swing a 3-1/2 inch propellor in the neighborhood of 30,000 RPM. In the second picture, that's a nickel it's sitting next to.

Wow! Nice little motor! I may be wrong but I am pretty sure those are worth some serious bucks too!

Edit: Its the cox .051 that are the most valuable!

I think the TeeDee 010 goes for around $75 on eBay from time to time. I bought this off a fellow from work who was cleaning out some old airplane stuff a couple of years ago. I think I paid $35 for it.

I've got 3 of those on a shelf in a closet (next to some .020's & a few McCoy .049's), but they're a long way from NIB -- more like OICC (old in coffee can).

Me Dad and me bruddas used 'em on free flight birds in the mid 1960's. For those who're wondering, the black shape aft is its fuel tank -- cuz they got such great mileage.
