Hi Glenn,
Thanks for the thoughts and I hear you...I can't say that the course I've chosen will be the cheapest, I've got $1500 in the "new" tractor motor and it still needs to have my old ( but perfectly good) marine stuff transferred to it.  The good news is when that is done, it just drops back in.... No new shaft/prop/coupling/haul out, electrical panel and wiring, shift and throttle, engine beds, etc., etc. The "new" motor, although not really new has about 400 hours on it...I consider that not very many.  I'll just have to see....I do know I was quite happy with the original Vetus 3.10, nice running little motor. To get virtually the same 24 HP motor back I think will be ok.

You always have to be careful with used equipment but often they are perfectly fine. Just takes patience and some mechanical checking before you commit...
