The Evolution 15cc and the OS 15cc gas engines are a good choice for a 4 Star 60 or 64.

You should also look at the RCGF 15 beam mount, it's a more traditional design, it has a rear mount Walbro carb and is lighter and less expensive then the OS or Evo

The RCGF 15 would be an excellent power choice for your model. My buddy has a Hangar 9 Ultra Stick 60 with an RCGF 15 that hauls it around in a most impressive fashion.

Yes I agree the RCGF 15 is a great little engine.Handles very nice and good power.I am flying one in a 82 span Road Runner. Friend has one in a Easy Stick from value hobbies.
Valley View sells them now.The new Valley View 40 twin is built by RCGF now.I have two of the original VV 40s. Never had a problem with either of them. I build my own ignitions.
BCCHI Tired old CH guy.
