KAVAN 50 cc FOUR CYCLE TWIN
Absolutely the finest quality...
The Kavan 3 Cubic Inch is one of the most outstanding engines available. Truly superb casting and impeccable German workmanship provide you a true masterpiece.
The FK50 is a scale version of the world famous Continental engine that was used in many popular early light aircraft. This alternate firing 4 cycle twin is virtually vibration free and extremely fuel efficient.
The FK50 is the only model engine made with a "wet sump" oil system with an internal oil pump. The lowest or no oil content glow fuel can be used resulting in the best possible combustion mixture. Also available in ignition version with a two magnet electronic pick up system for advancing and retarding of spark. This allows an excellent low speed idle and reduces possibility of kick back during starting.
