I believe Osco made a lot of marine water cooled exhaust manifolds for the backyard engine converter. Get an engine in a wrecking yard or buy a short block and build your own marine engine. I'm guessing the 50s and early 60s.

Just did a little reading about Osco, they did more than manifolds. I was surprised. Osco Motors Corp: About Us
