Default Re: has anyone used a china girl engine as an outboard motor for a small boat ???

There is an old thread discussing this subject. If I find it I'll link to it for you.

The biggest problem you might face is cooling. The Chinese 2 stroke has no provisions for cooling itself except movement through the air. Unlike chainsaws, weed whackers and the like there is no shrouding or flywheel with cooling fins. Air passing over the cylinder and cylinder head is the only way a CG can dissipate heat.

That's just food for thought.
