To do a complete over haul on this engine you will need Rod bearings Main bearings, A new cam and lefter set, timing chain and gear set, oil pump, cam bearings, complete gasket set, head bolts, Water pump, pistons and rings to match, and you will need to take the block and heads to a good machine shop and have them reworked. You ca not order your parts till the machine shop tells you what size pistons and bearings to get.
