  2. Very Cool. That engine looks just like my Russian M-21. Leave it the USSR to be making the same engine since at least the 60's.

    Actually, 1957 :)
    Also those chinese engines sold in USA are spinoffs from early russian ones. So chinese have produced the same engine even longer (the production of Russian engines stopped a few years ago)
