Ian, I don't see any mention but one big question is whether the engine was salt-water raw water cooled. Raw salt water can eat out cooling passages in the engine, making it incredibly expensive or totally impossible to rebuild. After enough years--it just doesn't pay to gamble if that's part of the question.
