Default Old C/L motor conversions??

I came across a couple of older control line motors from a friend that used to do that stuff, He said the worked fine, and they look to be in good shape. But I would like to know if I could convert them for R/C use??
I have a SUPER TIGRE 35 G-21 and a MAX-S OS 35. I've looked a little in places like tower hobby, but not quite sure what I'm looking for exactly. Any Help as to part Numbers or places to purchase carb control stuff for these motors would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks..

You would probably be better off selling them to some U/C flier than trying to find carbs & mufflers, take the money & put that toward a new engine. Should be worth from $25.00 to $45.00 each , depending on condition. MAX H.
