Help me find an engine

I removerd a destroyed Atomic 4 and am looking for a small diesel to replace it. It need to be in the 20 - 25 hp range with a good tranmission. Does anyone have a good used or rebuilt one or can you help lead me to one.
Thanks.

I know where a quality late model Freshwater A-4 is. Still in boat and in running condition. Great Lakes location. Let me know if you are interested and I will contact the owner. Obviously it is a drop in replacement for your existing engine and exponentially less expensive. When you retrofit with a diesel you have a myriad of costs in excess of the engine cost. New engine bed, new prop, new prop shaft, new control cables, new fuel lines, possibly a new a fuel tank, fuel filter, control panel etc.
