Default Rcmk 116 cc inline 4 cly

I know this is a a little off topic but does anyone know if this engine can be converted to a air cooled engine like the 57 cc twin. I'm building a 1/4 scale fuel dragster and this looks like the perfect power plant for my project any input would be greatly appreciated thanks.

RCMK doesn't offer air-cooled heads for their engines. Ganging air-cooled Zenoah's would be easier to do. Earth Surfer Products out of Grand Rapids and sold through Dave's Discount Motors might be able to set you up.
Kalamazoo huh?

Ya not to far from gr. I know that was a dumb question was just curious I've not seen this engine till just recently it would be a great dragster engine from the looks I could see it looked like two 57 twins put together and was hopeing that well you know you could put the 57 heads on it. Don't know unless you ask. Thanks tjhe to two twins together sounds good don't think it would be to hard to pull off. Thanks again for the input

4 cylinder crankcase available from Matho Powertrain. You might be able to get Zenoah air-cooled heads to fit. Drop him a line and ask.

No problem at all. I've been to his house and saw his shop. He's east of US-131 and I think north of M-6. It's been a few years.
