I'm looking at buying a boat with a marine power 502 engine. What can I expect from these engines in terms of longevity and maintanence. Would you recomended them? Any seriouse problems to look out for? I appreciate any input.

I have not heard of any issues with the newer 502 but had heard that the earlier versions has issues because the cylinder walls were so thin that the had cracking and overheating issues.
