I recently acquired a Cox Space Hopper for my Jaysbird 250. I always used the Tatone Aluminum mount for the Tee Dees, but those are too short for the Hopper. Does anyone know of an aluminum mount for the Space Hopper? Did Tatone ever make one?

Yes, Tatone did make a beam mount for the Space Hopper that attached radially to the firewall.
It is a good engine. You should be able to find a mount if you advertise for one.11/20/2008 at 5:21 am #46632AnonymousInactive
Cox supplied a beam mount in the bubble package as seen in the attached photos

That looks great, George. You wouldn’t happen to have one of those lying around, would you?
If anyone has either a Tatone mount or the Cox mount for the Space Hopper, I am interested in buying it.

I wonder if it would be possible to simply create a mount from a store bought mount. The cox mount is two peices, (each side) it might be possible to cut apart a mount for say a .09 or .15 engine and use it simular to the cox mount.
just a thought…

Sig used to sell a two piece mount, but I couldn’t locate one on the web catalog. It is getting harder and harder to find stuff for engine power.

Thought I had one of those long Tatone mounts but couldn’t find it. Instead found several of the red plastic tanks for the TD or Medallion. As a suggestion, if you cut out the circle where the TD backplate would go and put in holes in the appropriate places for the fuel feed and needle valve plus a few “breather holes”, you’d have a light weight mount with minimum fuss and bother. There is 1inch of clearance between the back of a TD case and the back wall of the tank, should be enough. If it looks like it will work might consider putting the needle valve horizontally coming out the right side with the fuel line on the left where the timer would be. Bladder tank would be the only way to go, a KK needle would help too( any comments on the legality of that?). High compression heads are legal on that engine and so would a Galbreath/Nelson head. If You can’t find one of those tanks, let me know, I have several but no SH. Good Luck, Glenn11/26/2008 at 12:23 am #46638
Thanks to all for the help. I have a couple of the red plastic tanks. I will see how that works. I am still in the market for a Tatone mount, though!

Here’s a try.
Look at MECOA website. Under accessories look at Tatone/CB mounts. CB mount #5402 might be your ticket to Nirvana.12/03/2008 at 12:12 am #46640
I checked with Randy Linsalato at MECOA. Unfortunately, the dies were lost for the CB Assoc. diecast mounts, and that one is no longer available. Anyone out there that has a long beam Tatone 1/2A mount, please contact me.
