WANTED: Mercury 125 powerhead

I am trying to track down a good used powerhead for a Mercury 125 4 cylinder thing. I've bought a Viking 5.8 with it on the back, but the engine is seized from water ingress.
Thanks.

If it's been that bad,make sure you can get the lower unit off before you commit to another powerhead.

The rest of the engine is fine. Had the mounts all done end of last year and a full service. Just need the block. I haven't bothered taking it apart to see how the water got in but I guess bottom crank seal or maybe internal corrosion.
