Sachs was one of the biggest built-in engines producer of the world with headquarter and production sites in Germany see also Hercules. The full name of the company that produced Sachs engines is ZF Sachs. The original manufacturers name is Herculesdue to lack of popularity in export markets the label Sachs or DKW were chosen.
For example, the Balboa is very similar to the Hercules but with slight trim changes.
The Sachs 50x series engine is known for its high rate of compression, ease of use, stability, and lack of case gasket. High compression is achieved though the unorthodox use of a combined cylinder and cylinder head. Referred to as a cylinder jugthis can be a mixed blessing as it is difficult to clean carbon deposits at the top of the jug. Also, if a spark plug hole's threads are damaged and rendered unusable, the entire cylinder may need have the hole heilicoiled or worse, the entire cylinder might be scrapped.
There are benefits to the engine with a relatively efficient clutch assembly that can be easily changed. The engine case is also split horizontally leading to no use for a case gasket as the transmission fluid sits below the seam of the engine case. Also, interchangeable parts, cases, gears are used between manual and automatic models.
The Sachs 50x series engine were available with 1 gear automatic transmissions mainly cheap mopeds and export2 gears, or as 3 gear manual transmissions. The engine could be ordered with incorporated pedal start, kick-start, handlebar gear-lever, or foot gear-lever.
Kick-started 3-gear engines are rare to find as production numbers were significantly lower than the popular 2-gear engines. The Sachs 50x series automatic engine also features a cable that engages not only the clutch but also a decompression valve. This decompression valve can be bypassed by fabricating a new cable. Doing this can make the moped harder to start but takes the weak decompression valve out of the equation.
The valve itself can be replaced by a bolt of the same size. The most used solution in motors was a Bosch variant of the 3, 4, or 5 wire type that are compatable with Puch. The type of transmission fluid for the automatic engines used should be Type F automatic, filled to the bottom of the plastic screw on the transmission side of the engine. This screw is easily stripped or ruined but replacements are cheap and metal variants are available.
Y is a number representing the amount of gears that the transmission contained. In the United States, manual transmission engines were not allowed legally so, occasionally this number was omitted. Automatics are referred to as "1". In Europe 2, 3 and 4 speed manual engines were sold in a variety of applications.
Some Sachs engines came with these identifiers, some did not.
