Welcome Cub, you will find a lot of help here. Knock on wood, my stater in my 84 is still performing as it should.
There is a pretty good bit involved but i have studied my Clymers and read a bit here as well as other sites, I think I could tackle engine removal.
As you being a marine mechanic you should be good to go, get a manual if you can. others will chime in. :)

Cub,
I am far from a marine mechanic. Just a backyard guy. Did a lot of reading and studied ever how to on this site. Had my 1981 engine out this winter and had to replace it with an 1982. I follwed each step in my Clymer one by one and am back up enjoying the ride. Wingadmin how to articles are the best I have seen. They really help when you need to remove parts to get at the engine. Good Luck!!!
