The pictures are bad enough that we cannot see what displacement it is. It is of the "G" series, but more than that, we cannot tell. Do you know the displacement?

I dont know the displacement of it, is it suppose to be written on the block or something? I guess I could measure it and come up with the displacement. I thought the pictures were pretty good. Do you need a close up of a specfic part?</p>

Ok, I just measured the bore and stroke and came up with .39 cu or 6.3cc so its safe to say its a .40 but the engine itself is not marked with a size at all. All it says on it is super tigre and then on the exhaust side it says made in italy and that is it. This thing looks like it has never been ran. Maybe I have a rare model or something.</p>

If it has a .40-size displacement or so, it could be an old G21/.40 RV from the 1970's. The designation means it's an engine of the G21 design series of .40 displacement. "RV" means "Rear Valve", which is the rear induction system.

It was one of the RC pylon racing engines used in the 1970's.
