Re: small air cooled diesel as inboard?
i think it will work, but how long it will last is another.I never had faith in those chinadiesels.
take a look at a ferrymann unit also

does it have to be a diesel? the small Honda units are dead reliable, another forumite not long ago put one in a small sailboat.
please tell us about the boat? size weight what you are you using it for?
