Atlant

I am searching for some information on this Atlant fourstroke engine, bought a few years ago from a Portugese seller and supposed to be 38cc capacity, fuelpump at the back, slide carburettor, metallurgy looks very very good quality, my guess is Russian... ?

I do not think it is a Dynamix looks bigger, I cannot compare since I do'nt have any 2stroke Webra with a slide carb

Google translate says he word atlant is a Slovak word if that helps. Beyond that I have no idea. Neat looking engine though.

Considering how nice looking the engine is would tend to point to it being of Czech origin. But we have so little information about engines from behind the iron curtain from the cold war days. The castings and appearance seems to imply it was going to be a commercial product too. So there may be more of them out there someplace.
That is a great looking engine.

Something like that. It's a neat engine - someday I'd like to come across some engines like that. I always hear of guys finding stuff like this dirt cheap at swap meets and flea markets or even Estate sales. Guess that's the price I pay for living in the Midwest.

I tend to think Czech engine too but a search here produced nothing:

Friend Danny Claes is well known for his tenacity in researching engines I cannot find. Here are two pics of an Atlant that are or were owned by Kmot who used to frequent rc-groups but have'nt seen him here for some time. Serial nmbr on his engine is 4. On my engine it is stamped 013.02.98 and 40 scribed on. The last picture of the Morane Saulnier is from a Russian site and it does say that the plane is powered by an Atlant 60cc, picture is somewhat vague but is indeed an Atlant. Kmot stated that the engine is German built but I have my doubts about that.

I have often wondered why more manufacturers dont fit the carb directly to the port. Is there a reason for the long intake on most commercial 4 strokes? I know a long intake helps with the bottom end on bigger engines but would the same apply to this size engine?

Cheers

Personally I think it has more to do with placing the carb more convenient, or maybe just to give the engine a certain "look"?

I guess parts like carbs and exhaust headers sticking out in all directions is not the best thing for clean looks, and with throttle levers in possible inconvenient places, that may play a role in the decision to place the carb the way OS or Saito or Enya do...

Just guessing...

Were the carb is is the spraybar, where the spraybar is has to be the centerline of the tank. airplane engines without a fuel pressure regulator!
