Type of Batavus engine. These engines can be found on Batavus Starflites, HS 50s, MoBats, Intercycles. It seems to be the more common Batavus engine compared to the M56. It also seems more favorable to modify because it has more "room" for improvement. The placement of the intake and carb leaves ample space for upgrade.


Disassemble

After all componets (Clutch, Magneto/Flywheel, Cylinder Head, Cylinder, Piston, and the 6 Case Screws) have been removed off of the engine find yourself a rubber mallet, an oven, some floor space, and 15 minutes to spare.

Turn oven to 225°
Set timer for 15minutes.
Place engine case in oven.
Wait.
When timer goes off pull case out of over, whack the crank ends (Flywheel or Clutch) until one half of case falls off (Ussually taking the crank with it), pick up other half and whack the rest of the crank out.

Be gentle! It'll break.
