I hear you, seen my share of such damage, but in all cases the engines have been exposed to air. my engin has not and therfor has no corosion.

a very different case as yours, however if it had id machine an other head witch id canibalise from any old single with sililar specs independent of make.
machanic is simple and universal no mather how makers try to prouve you otherwise.

Explored that too.

And it was still stupid expensive to even attempt.

As it was, I found a nearly new Yanmar 2GM20F for the same money it would have cost me to rebuild...but lost the boat in a divorce, so never got to install it.....
