    if you are overboring then you need to get new pistons. If not, here is what I would replace:
    piston rings
    rod/main bearings and thrust washers (have the crank polished)
    Check the rocker arms for excessive wear, replace if needed.
    Check the cams for excessive wear, replace if necessary or if you want to go to bigger cams
    check valve seats, replace of grind if necessary
    check valve guides
    check valves
    check springs and retainers
    replace all the seals and gaskets
    replace the oil and water pumps
    check the clutch
    that sounds like about it (tranny internals aside). I will add more if I think of them. Most of all, get a Helms manual for that engine.
