If the power head is air cooled it is most likely built by Eska.It uses a Tecumseh power head. Parts will be available by the Tecumseh model at a small engine shop.Depending on the year it could be a V58 Split crankcase or AV600,AV750 or AV817.unit block among other numbers.Keep in mind the exhaust leg is water cooled so be sure water mists out of the relief holes on the leg.I would consider these motors marginal performers at best.
Not terribly reliable but the price was right so if you don`t mind tinkering a bunch it will push your boat like a 5.
