Evinrude 25hp help power head

I have an Evinrude 1980 long shaft that has bad scored cylinder and I was wondering what other years have the same power head that would be compatible? One option is a 1990 short shaft, would the power head in that be compatible? Is it much to swap over to my outboard?

There are many others that will fit !!----But you have to switch out the exhaust tuner as well.----Research or a trusted mechanic is needed.----Check on the SPLINE in the crankshaft as well !
