No clue , what it might be ; who made it, or what the Hp
is ? Absolute no name-tags on it anywhere ; it's kinda
new, because there's no tarnish on the carb, or where the
muffler hooks up. The carb is 32mm .

It came off a Powered Parachute trike ; I plan to get rid of the
of the prop cage, and do an aluminum tripod to my CG, and
use it as a Hang glider trike, (short term, for now) I got
some really Cool ideas on how to make a pod for the motor glider.

Anybody have any idea , what this engine might be ; who made it
or a Hp rating ?

Thanks : Bille

One other thing about the engine :
It spins a 42" , 4 blade prop.

Why were the blades , arraigned that way ?

The staggar means trailing edge wake is unequal, śo there is an offset to bring wakes into alignment. If Anyone asks say they drilled it upsidedown & wouldn't give a refund.
