Has the cause of salt water ingestion been addressed? A savvy potential buyer would want to know. Does the turbo have any manufacturers data stamped on it?

A small rubber hose sending water to the stuffing box had a small leak. Water spray got in the turbo and boat was not ran for some time. The turbo got stuck. The motor is a 1989 225 and is a water cooled turbo. A little over 1000hr on motor.
