There is no set number for the miles-hours figure. Most direct drive engines are good for 2,000 hours if they are maintained well. There is nothing wrong with installing a good used engine. My boat was repowered prior to me getting it due to not being winterized. I have a 1000 hour boat with a 500 hour engine that purrs like a kitten at idle and roars at WOT. Going the short block route is also a fine alternative. Be sure to freshen the heads if you go this route.

I resprayed most things when I rebuilt the engine except for the exhaust manifolds, I did not want to get into redoing the silver letters on there, maybe down the road.

Mine is on the LH side of engine at the back. Right against the tranny. I can barely get a specially cut out bleach bottle under it, there is about 1/8" gap byw filter and rib on the trans. Really hard to get a filter wrench on it. Plus I try to poke holes to drain most of oil out which helps minimize mess.

If yours is further fwd, that would help. 2" would be monumental. Or if the powers lot leaves you more space.

I wouldn't change out the hour meter. But I would take a photo of the bill of sale for the new motor along side the hour meter to document hours at the time of the install.

This sounds like good advice.

thats what I was thinking but.. Since new motor and what not.. If I keep the old tach and do the new gauge why wouldn't you want to know exact hours of a new motor pretty much a new boat IMO since that 95% on the running gear is new.
