If it has just been serviced & had a clean bill of health then I think it will be a great engine!
Mine was sat around having done very low hours to then be stored for a bit too long B4 I got it, I had it all sorted under warranty!

You'll be fine without smart craft gauges. The early ones never had them.

With regard to the blue injector collars it is very important that you check this. If they are not fitted insist that the vendor gets them changed under the terms of the recall for you.

Might be worth checking the air filter, and excessive movement in the prop (left to right) and the rubber bushes on the contact points at the bottom of the leg. They can go and they are 200 to replace. (I'm told they are very similar to Ford Cortina bushes so that ight be worth investigating!)

Also check the anodes, (top of cav plate, bottom of transom clamp and under cav plate)
