I have not looked into a marine version of this engine but I think it would be a great solution to old or stale fuel mix combos...
My point wasn't oil injection vs.manually adding oil to gas....my point is oil doesn't have to be added for 2 stroke diesels

No, you're still missing my point....2 stroke gas engines have to have oil added to the fuel for combustion either by adding oil to the gas in the tank or having oil injected into the the fuel from a separate tank.

With 2 stroke diesel engines, oil does not have to be added to the fuel for combustion. There's enough lubricity in diesel fuel that additional oil is not needed.

Re: 2 stroke inboard

does anyone have any information about converting an outboard for inboard use? the cal27 i just bought used to have a vire 7. it is gone and the previous owner mounted a bracket on the transom for an outboard ( which is also not there, now ). i would rather have inboard power thasn outboard. i personally don't care if it is 2 stroke or not. if there is a 4 stroke option i would rather that.

i am working on a....restrained budget. so, if i could find a way to convert someone's old outboard to inboard use, that might be just wat the dr ordered. sorry. not trying to hijack the thread or anything.

Re: 2 stroke inboard

Your best bet would be one of the old OMC sail drive units. It basically is a 30 HP outboard turned into a 15 hp sail drive. There was a company adapting Honda outboard engines to sail drives a short time ago, but I haven't looked for a while (Saildrive 280). SAILDRIVE.INFO - Selection Try this site lots of useful info. I have no connection other than a google search. In my experience, it is rarely less expensive to engineer a new system. That is hanging an outboard on a boat that originally came with an inboard is easy. Converting a boat that came with an outboard to an inboard, not so much. Converting an outboard to saildrive, and cutting a 2x3 foot hole in the bottom of your boat to mount it, well it could easily be the long way around.

Re: 2 stroke inboard

i may have found a direct replacement motor for that boat. that does seem to me that is a lot more work than simply adapting another inboard motor to fit. when i read about adapting an outboard to fit, i had thought of using the existing shaft, in some way. if you had no original inboard ( no shaft or other elements for the placement of an inboard ) then i think this sail drive might be a good idea. much like an outboard well, just sealed in. i have been considering modifying the lazerate on my holiday 20 into an outboard well, but a sail drive sort of set up might be an idea for that. possibly a future project
