Korado Engine Differences
Its has all been figured out, I have an anti clockwise stator, BUT since the engine on my maxi is from a Supermaxi or as its called here in the USA a Korado, my stator turns clockwise.
My engine was manufacutured in 1998, way after Puch was purchased by Piaggio. This engine was made by the Povazske strojarne company under the Puch name. there are a few key differences, the most major of them being that the internal main gears are cut in reverse, thus making the stator turn clockwise when the bike is pushed forward, the opposite of a regular E50.
This is my engine type …notice that it is an e50 , but notice the direction of the gearing on the main shaft..this is from a korado, sometimes but not always the korado engine like above will have 4 bearings not 3, but most come with 3, they also came in a kickstart model
This is from a 70’s era puch e50, this engine was made in Austria and came on a regular maxi, notice the opposite gear pattern and the anti-clockwise rotation
