WaterMota Engines



WaterMota Exhaust BendsMost Freeman Cruisers have WaterMota engines as their source of power. The majority are petrol engines, either the Sea Wolf or Sea Tiger, but there is also the diesel WaterMota Sea Panther.

There are two versions of the WaterMota Sea Wolf and Sea Tiger inboard petrol engines. Initially the Mk 1 was based on the Ford Pre-Crossflow engine. In 1967/8 Ford introduced the Crossflow version which led to the creation of the WaterMota Sea Wolf and Sea Tiger Mk 2 engines.

It is important when ordering parts to know whether your WaterMota is a Mk 1 Pre-Crossflow or a Mk 2 Crossflow engine as the parts are quite different. It is very easy to identify the engines:-

  • On the Pre-Crossflow the carburettor sits directly on top of the exhaust manifold.
  • On the Crossflow the carburettor is one side and the exhaust manifold is the other.
