This Cox .049 engine includes a pull start and centrifugal clutch. A retractible starter cord makes starting this engine easier (and safer) than turning the prop on an airplane engine. The centrifugal clutch indicates that it was designed to be used on a model car or boat. This engine is in original condition. The dust has been cleaned off, but it hasn’t been polished, and the compression is good.
