If you're getting an engine rebuilder to check, machine and assemble the block, they can probably get the parts cheaper than if you buy & supply them.

i'd be reassembling it myself, its just a stock engine built with stock parts, no machining or anything.

Bores will need a hone at the very least Glenn, thats if they are still good.
I'd probably get the deck skimmed too, just to give AU MLS headgasket 100% surface to seal on.
