    Hello guys,
    'm new to the forum, I'm Italian and I live in Verona. I would like to ask you if you know this engine:
    Motore Mosler, ricambio usato in vendita
    I think that in Italy there are not many, or perhaps there is only this one.
    I thank those who will kindly give information about the engine.
    Fabrizio

    P.S.
    sorry for my bad English ...

    It looks to me like a half VW engine but with only one view it is hard to tell for sure.

    thanks to all,
    I'm building a glider:
    PIUMA PROJECT - PIUMA ORIGINAL
    and I want to motorize with a 4-stroke. Currently I have a Rotax 2-stroke 40hp.
    thanks Regards
    Fabrizio

    Don't know if you really got an answer to your Q. It is a Mosler engine. It is upside down in the picture, the Carb should be to the bottom of the engine as it is a Zenith updraft type. I have a Global engine, the precessor of the Mosler. There is some info available to download on the 'net' if you do a little searching.
