Unless the PO abused that engine, it may go another 10,000 hours. But to know more definitively, do a blowby test which evaluates the condition of the piston rings and cylinders by measuring the exhaust gas flow that blows by the rings.

Even if high, that engine can be rebuilt in place. It has wet cylinder liners. The core engine at 6.8 liters and 1,500 lbs to produce 145 hp is what the guys on boatdiesel call "big iron". The crank has 7 bearings and with that beef I would doubt that the crankshaft is worn. At best roll in new bearing shells in place.

A data sheet is attached for that engine.
