Well, I bought the engine, and it will fit the space that I have available. Next is to start getting the hardware to make it work.
For example: It looks like I will have to replace my exist. two lever control system with a Single lever system, why i am not sure. Second, I will have to replace the propeller as it is a left hand. I am looking at a folding propeller for this. The prop-shaft will probably be replaced as well. Presently it is at an angle of 2.75deg. The Yanmar manual suggests anywhere from 8 to 15 deg. I don't think it is going to be problem. Lastly, I am going to refinished the engine and make it look like new (a lot of work here).
Anyway I hope to install this engine between October and Xmas of this year.
