buying a used yanmar 2qm15, TIPS?

any real life pointers on SPECIFICS before going ahead would be greatly appreciated

stuff like

where does corrosion start and what gets destroyed first? elbow, pan, etc...

whats a solid cruising rpm(propeller pitch and diameter)

what to look at when buying used...

can you do an easy compression check on it? does it have decomp levers like the 2gmf?

I should add that Im not completely unfamiliar with this type of engine as I had a freshwater 2gmf that I travelled with for 12k milles and became completely familiar with it

however it does have some differences that might not translate to the 2qm
