If you have serious concerns, it might be best (if only for peace of mind) to have a separate engine survey performed. This would be by a certified engine surveyor, not the guy/gal you've hired for the rest of the boat.
Personally, I would consider it a plus if the engine had been properly re-built. A bigger concern to me would be whether this particular engine is raw or fresh water cooled. You might also ask what precipitated the re-build?
Also, most 3GMs I'm familiar with had a higher HP rating (our 3GM30F for instance is 27hp peak, 24 hp continuous), but yours could just be an older version that I'm not familiar with.
Good luck to you!
