Default Four Stroke marine glow engines?

Hello all. I have been away from boats for several years now, and this may be a dumb question, but the last time I ran boats was with my dad, we had O.S. marine four strokes. Now I can't seem to find any one that makes them, they seem to have droped from the face of the earth, can some one tell me the reason behind this??


Thanks

Hi aps f4u,

Tell me if I'm wrong, but there are plenty of 4-strokes around that can be used for marine if you choose to.

I believe you can even purchase cylinder-cooling-tubes to convert them to water cooled.

Let me know how it goes, if you do something. I also have interest in that.

Thanks!

Thanks for that info Jhoyoz, I have an old 48"Chris-crafts boat that was my dads that he had built some twenty five years ago and we use to have an old O.S. .40 marine engine in it and it just ran great and beeing it was a four stroke it added that scale sound. Do you have any links to where I can get the items neede to convert it for a marine four stroke? I have plans to try and get a four stroke back in it this summer to play with, just don't know for sure on how to go about keeping the engine cool.....more research I guess.
