It would come out looking new. I wouldn’t give it a second thought based on my experience.
Basically agree with above. Mounts are now 15 yrs and seem fine.
I had an impeller fail at 4 yrs (& ~150 hrs) when purchased and now change mine after 3 yrs and 400-500 hrs. A lot easier when they come out whole vs 50 +/- pieces!
I'm in fresh water and have switched to all Alum anodes. I find them more readily available and couldn't locate all Mag when I looked.
If interested I can provide my list for my Yan 6LYA STP.

FYI Steve Cyr's Stella Blue website is a wealth of info for MS 400T
