Put a new life into your old Moskvitch!

Available on back-order

A treat for every Mossi owner – a virtually unused Moskvitch engine for your favourite car.

These engines come from military power generators mounted in Russian KUNG standardized Russian military truck or trailer module.
Although made in the 1970s and 1980s, they were kept in dry storage in case of a natural catastrophe, or a war, so they worked only for about 80 to 200 hours. They used to provide power to command and control vehicles of Warsaw Pact armies.
This means, that they are basically unused. For all their life, they had all hoses connected, and they were regularly serviced, by the soldiers, so they are like new.

This offer is a great way to upgrade your Moskvitch with a practically new engine at a bargain. Factory new engines like this cost about €2500. Here you can buy an engine with over 90% of its resource for less, than half of that.

Of course, before sale, we do a complete service of these engines.

All of them are tested and serviced like they should be. First we twice replace oil, filters and coolant. Then, we start them and let them run for about an hour, or two to see how are they doing. We also measure compression on each cylinder, to make sure, that everything is OK. Only engines, which pass this test with flying colours, are being sold. We also adjust the valves and put on a new gasket under the engine cover. Carburettor and fuel pump are disassembled, cleaned, put back together and adjusted. The original shielded ignition distributor is also tested, adjusted and replaced, if necessary. As well as ignition cables.

To install one in your car, you’ll need to change the carburettor, engine mounts, clutch and clutch cover to the ones in your car. You might keep the shielded ignition distributor, or use a regular, civilian unit. This is a very easy job, much cheaper and simpler, than a complete engine rebuilt, which would be necessary in other cases.


Thanks to their outstanding condition and our pre-sale service, we sell our MZMA-408 Moskvitch engines with 12 months limited warranty.
