Title: Fox 049/07/09/10 parts inventory
Post by: ffkiwi on October 01, 2018, 04:07:41 PM
Can someone update me on who the current owner of the Fox 'small engine' parts inventory is (and their contact details)-I am aware that it has changed hands a few times since H&R Engines owned it in the 1990s.....the last name I recall associated with it was a Doug? Martin.    I have a couple of restoration projects sitting on the back burner which I'd like to advance-but I need to find out what spares-if any are still available...

Actually-MECOA only have the 09 and 10 inventory.....the 049/07 stuff is owned by another concern entirely...Matt, of EX model engines-who is offering complete 049s....see:

I gather he is still working sorting through the inventory...and much of the componentry is unfinished...and there doesn't seem to much much-if any- of the 07 parts....many of which were the same base as the 049 but machined slightly differently.

 I have one of the original 1990s reissue 049 FAI Spls....my current interest is trying to find an 07 R/C and a 10....the latter seem especially thin on the ground. I could actually make one of I can find enough parts,,,(Mecoa.....) as they use many of the 09 parts....I'd need a case, shaft and backplate, as the other parts are 07 or 09 in origin...
