    I bought a friction drive motor from a guy off craigslist that was missing a few pieces and thought it might be an easy fix. Turns out no one has heard of these US Engines and i cant find the parts i need anywhere. I heard they may be called TC engines? The guy said they were popular on the west coast awhile ago. I tried ebay, different mower shops, scooter and mb stores. I am missing the insulator(black plastic between carb&block) and the air filter housing. Im almost getting tired of looking but i dont wanna give up on this, can someone please help me out. thanks

    Well, the model # indicates it is a 35cc. They were used in RC aircraft. It is based on a Frontier chainsaw. That's what I picked up from Google.

    If I were in your situation, I would compare carbs, and find an air cleaner and spacer from a similar engine using that carb I guess. Tis unusual to say the least.
