I repowered my Ontario 32 myself.

I used a Yanmar 3YM20.

No regrets.

I saved quite a bit of money.

Drill two holes through the cap.
Use a bung wrench (like the kind for a table saw, or circular saw, with two pins through it) to twist out the cap. Replace the cap.

I seal the bottom of mine. I find it really helps make the varnish last longer and it protects the wood.
