I don't know if I'd use an OS .46 as they do have reliability problems. I had one that was nothing but trouble until the death blow was the bottom of the case cracking. These engines are known for this to happen.
As far as putting it in either the SW 36 or the TC 31, the radio box is going to be in the way of the exhaust.
The OS .46 also needs an 11cc pipe, not one for a 7.5cc.

RON THATS NOT WHAT I WANTED TO HEAR. I THOUGHT OS WAS BETTER THAN THAT? ANYONE RUNNING A 40 SIZE ROSSI? I HEARD ZENOAH IS GETTING READY TO MAKE A 20CC GAS MARINE ENGINE SOON. MAYBE ILL WAIT AND TRY TO CONVERT TO THAT. FOR NOW I GUESS I'LL JUST CONCENTRATE ON NEW 50" GAS PRO CAT, DO YOU KNOW IF TANZI EVER FINISHED THAT OPS 67 CONVERSION? THANKS FOR THE REPLY, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK

OS's .21 and under are great engines but the .46 has had its problems. It does have a very good carb if that helps at all.
