Default Need Engine for PC-9

I have a PC-9 and used a 2 stroke .46 and the engine would never run right because the fuel tank is higher than the engine and it would just flood out. I would rather use a 4 stroke O.S. What size would be best and what mod's would I have to make for trouble free running, Perry Pump etc...?

you should get into the fuel tank bay and grind off some plywood from the tank bearers so the tank goes down lower. i can,t remember which way the engine is mounted in the PC-9 but if its inverted or on its side , you can also try mounting it upright, this will raise the carby venturi level to stop engine flooding.
