Mosler CB40


The engine was progressively developed designed around Volkswagen air-cooled engine components. Global Motors originally designed a 1/2 VW engine for use in light aircraft. The company and its designs were then sold to Mosler Motors. Warren Mosler specialized in racing engines and added the engine to the list of products eventually marketed under the company name Total Engine Concepts.
The CB-40 was re-engineered to overcome problems of vibration and cooling in the original design. In order to improve oil circulation a new oil sump, professionally designed and CNC manufactured was added. Prepared for carb heat and cabin heat.
