2stroke to 4stroke

I have a few Q's.
1)How much is a 60hp 2stroke mariner 2005 outboard worth?
2)How hard is it to take the engine off and put the 4stroke on?
3)If I were to get a 4stroke what are the main effects of it apart from fuel efficiency and noise?

1) depend on condition but some where between 2000 & 3000
2) easy, you can just swap the engine and use a loom converter to fit the 4 stroke if the new engine is newer than 2006, a pre 2006 would be a straight swap. If you change the control box as well, all holes and fitting are the same so it's straight swap, the only difficulty will depend on how easy it is to thread the new loom through.
3) The main benefit will be fuel efficiency & not having the 2 stroke oil but the 2 stroke is a good engine
