I'd lean towards a Dumas because of the deck. There's probably no deck available but you can check their site.

You could sell the K&B to "Big Sky" for the parts , and buy a more modern engine like CMB.

How much do you think I could get for it I pulled it apart and it still has hash marks from when the cylinder was honed so i know it was barely ran

considering the size of the hull, its probably a K&B .67, price would depend on the general condition. You can get pictures of K&B engines on the Mecoa site to identify which model you have. A more modern engine like the CMB would cost quite a bit and its doubtful it would make much difference in that hull.
