    Yes, you can install the larger three cylinder motor in place of the red two cylinder engine. Lots of other stuff also needs to be changed, including ignition CDI, jet pump impeller, possibly new hull inserts for the front motor mounts. Probably some other bits too.

    And you need to source a complete three cylinder engine with caburetors and exhaust.

    The easier route may be to buy a three cylinder watercraft and a double trailer. Then your wife can ride one machine while you ride the other!
