    This is a conversion from Norbert Schwarze in Germany, based on a 38-series B&S
    http://www.flying-directory.com/popup_info.php?action=aircraft&id=5096
    Not sure if these engines are still being built, Norbert has retired and handed his business on to other people.
    The better known converter is Bautek (bautek.com) but no info on the engine in English and very little in German. Also based on the 38 with redrive.

    This looks like the smaller Briggs, series 38, with a reduction gear on the PTO end.

    Your browser probably translates, but this is what Google says for me:

    The pictures are instructive. Herr Engels added a triangular vertical support to the bed type motor mount, and tied it into the reduction drive framework with a big-ass piece of all-thread with Barry Mounts at either end. And got rid of the resilient mounts to the heads.

    It depends on the engine, but this could be an illustration of the downside of driving off the PTO end - that's where all the good tapped holes in the case are, to work out your engine mount.

    Norbert Schwarze is a big cheese in European ultralights, and at one time made trikes, and it looks like paramotors?[/QUOTE]
