The surface rust when cleaned up and painted, should not be an issue.

As mentioned, how are the splines and rubber bushing?

How often do they fail at your HP/boat weight level?

Is the rubber still supple? Or all cracked?
What is the 'quality' of a new one? Made offshore?

I'm all for reliability. I run a single engine. But you have to be reasonable.
