Frozen Westerbeke

Looking at a P30 with frozen westerbeast. Haven''t dug very deep. Diesels don''t scare me. I figured starting with Marvel Mystery Oil and doing a crankshaft-up rebuild as I did with my old Volvo MD2B. I can get the engine out of the boat pretty easy. Generally speaking, and without more, how do anyone feel about the Westerbeke? Tempted to toss it if it isn''t cooperative, add an outboard bracket and have the boat rated for racing engineless. Might get a little TOO tender, though. Whaddaya t''ink? Where do I go for parts, manuals and guidance? Thanks for input.
