The cylinder is very similar to the J B engine. It has a special transfer system of the ports. Similar to the very powerful Webra engines. This shape of transfer ports results in maximum cylinder filling on the intake stroke; only engines with modern type snuerle porting are more efficient. Take a close look at the needle in the pictures and you will appreciate the extra care that the Czech craftsmen took when they produced these magnificent little gems.
