    Hello shifters ,   Does somebody knows the brand of this engine. There are no names or signs on the engine.

    Thanks

    Looks like something old European from Pavesi, Parilla, May be Rotax?

    Not sure of brand but considering the rotary valve intake it must be a Formula C engine from the late 90s early 2000s.

    I agree, Formula C with the rotary induction.  Could be from a bit earlier than that, Greg.

    I ran TM’s, and by the mid-90′s, most of the head designs were going to a more rounded shape, like the TM KV95, compared to the previous generation like the TM KV92 that had more of a square head shape, like we see in the picture.

    That said, all I remember from the pre-KV95 days was TM and Pavesi.  Once the KV95 came out, there seemed to be a lot more options – Vortex, CRS, KZH…  Could be that they came into the game with an older head design?  I don’t remember anymore.

    Mind you, I think some, like CRS, only made a reed valve FC engine, not a rotary.

    That could even be a real old reed valve.  Look up the TM KL.   It’s the predecessor to the K7 reed, which was the first shifter I had (and still have one in the garage).  The KL was a reed with intake on the side of the case.
