I'm pretty certain that Mk1 Lotus Cortinas were all fitted with twin cam Lotus  engines.
Have you got the engine number, you can probably trace the engines use from that?

Forgot to say that if the head is aluminium there is a possibilty it was produced by Cosworth Engineering but saying that I've never seen one.

You are correct TT, all Lotus Ford derived engines are twin overhead camshaft & as such I would have been a bit useless for marine purposes. Cosworth did produce an ally head, but even in the day they were very rare & expensive, so again I doubt if anyone would use one for marine use, unless they had a cossy engine left from a terminal racing accident!

I thought that was the case, I know Cosworths made heads but wasn't sure if they ever made 1 for a ford push rod engine.

Although I suspect this thread is now dead Aquaplane made an aluminium cylinder head for the pre crossflow. I remember Mangoletsi for inlet manifolds but it seems they also did marinisation kits, one of them uses a pipe through the sump of the pre crossflow engine as a heat exchanger.

I think Cosworth did do an 8 valve conversion on the 1.5 for Lotus. It was fitted to the Super Seven. These cars known as Super Seven Cosworths had a nasty habit of breaking rear  A frames as the Standard 8 axle tried to cope and twisted under torque.
