Help with Old Engine

I purchased a 1966 Pearson Wanderer and I need help with the engine. On the heat exchange it says Lathrop. Does that mean it is a Lathrop engine? It does not appear to be an Atomic 4. I am trying to have the head redone and I need parts (no where to find them). I know very little about engines but there are springs in the head that need to be replaced.
Any help will be a help.
Thanks

Help with Old Engine

is it a gas or diesel engine??? Is it a straight shaft with stuffing box or an attached lower unit protruding from the hull?? Is it a 1,2 or 4 cylinder engine?? This might help....

This site would be a good place for you to start, he has links to other sites as well. -

Then you might want to jump onto the Pearson Discussion List here on Sailnet. Sometimes the best information comes from owners of the same boat.
