rebuilding 8HP kicker

My 2004 Johnson, 4 stroke has a bunch of time on it, still runs good, using very little oil so its probably good to go. However, can this little motors be rebuilt or is just not worth it?

I would do a compression test and if the compression is good, I would clean out the carb, check the lower unit and if everything checks out ok  just keep on using it. A new one is about $2000 . with that in mind you can check out what a rebuild costs and take it from there
