This guy has it right. according to the case number.

However; we all know that heatsinks and head buttons can be changed at will; so you probably won't know what it really is until you tear it down.

The number on the case is 0310078. Where do you go to check the number. I' m will take it apart and post pictures of the sleeve in a little bit.

acording to that number its CS "sport", more than likely a three or five port as mentioned above. acording to the .pdf on the rb site its a 5 port

All the old S motors have that "C5" molded into the side of the crank case. The number says its a sport 3 port but that head/heatsink could have come off an S3,S5 or S7.
