i think they just include all the seals and gaskets required...doing a proper rebuild would involve getting the engine bored out with new pistons, full cleaned and so on...should cost u around 2g's if u do it urself...

a rebuild kit would consist of
new piston/rings all gaskets

BUT first u will need to get the blocked bore/honed to find out the correct size of the piston u need...

from memory it wont have the crank bearings, if you are not sure on what you need to get done maybe get the engine recoed by a pro?

as to do it yourself u will need to take the engine out and apart then get teh block to the machinist.. now days it is fairly inexpensice for a drive in drive out jobby
