Man, that is one Nasty Bugger! Makes me shudder with bad memories of an 80 HP West Bend Tiger Shark that I used to own!
They basically flopped the powerhead of that motor on its side and plumbed the carbs into the intake port covers. I imagine a 2-stroke doesn't care how it's positioned, it'll still run even sideways!
West Bend turned into Chrysler but I don't know if there's any interchange there. I believe Chrysler had an I/O boat but don't know what outdrive the early ones used.
You might try Googling for more info; maybe plugging in 'Tiger Shark' will lead you to something.
It'll truly be unique if you can get it going.
