Agreed that it is about RWC & FWC, I was thinking that the 1GM10 (RWC) must not be available in the USA but still available "down under" and as the OP is "down under", it may be of interest to him.

BTW, I have found your professional opinion on engine questions on CF to be very helpful so for the record, what is your professional opinion on pros and cons of RWC on smaller engines?

I don't have a problem with RWC on our small engines. FWC was introduced to make the engines more thermally stable, efficient and emissions compliant.
As long as over heating is kept to a minimum with a RWC engine it'll last 20+ years.
