How about an OMC powered helicopter?
I'll try and find a picture of it on my old PC.

Some ultralight planes also use modified 2 stroke power heads.

Marine powerheads? Must be highly modified. Cooling would be a big issue, I'd expect.

Wow and it looks water cooled still despite weight being a major issue for aircraft. Then again a thin water jacket and tiny impeller might be same weight as a mass of fins and big fan. Prob good for reliably cooling the engine at the back of the aircraft or in a hover too. Add in the low state of tune for outboards for reliability and it does make sense.

Knew a fisherman that had a flexi drive running off the flywheel of a seagull engine to a small longline hauler .

You only catch you elbow once with a seagull : / ,, think it was a originally a retro fit kit that could be bought in the 1950s only worked with the neutral/ forward gear model otherwise you had a hand full .
It also could be unconnected with a bayonet type fitting then run a bilge pump if needed within seconds .
