Car engines, BMW, VW ,Toyota are seldom successful ,with marine type loads.

There are some fine engines that seldom (except the lobster guys) see marine service.

My favorite for low cost and genuine HD construction is the International 360 or 466.

Almost new is only a few thousand , and the bell housing is std SAE so a marine tranny can be hung on easily.

As these are usually skool bus engines they take light loads ok , and are fine at WOT , their normal operating condition.
