Yep, probably next to impossible to find but what the heck.... :) This was a 3 cylinder, radial two stroke engine made by Konig in Berlin a loooong time ago. If you have one or know where I could locate one it would be greatly appreciated. I'm using this to power a blimp. Thanks! Ron

From Wikipedia - only 300 hours between overhauls and 24hp... Interesting engine.


The SC 430 is a unique three cylinder radial engine that is very compact and lightweight at only 17 kg (37 lb). The engine features single capacitor discharge ignition, a single Bing 49 diaphragm type carburetor and rotary valve induction. It is currently offered without a reduction drive, although when Zanzottera built it a 1.75:1 cog belt reduction drive was available. Starting is electric starter only and a recoil starter is not an option.[1][2][3]

Earlier versions produced 24 hp (18 kW) at 4200 rpm with a slide-type carburetor and reduction drive. The current version is rated at 20 hp (15 kW) at 4200 rpm. Time between overhaul is rated as 300 hours.[1][2][3]

The SC 430 shares the same bore and stroke as the larger four cylinder König SD 570radial engine
