Engine condition:  busted rings and some cracked cam followers and thats it.
What we did:    bought new rings, gasket set, camfollowers, new rocker arm and installed them  and put every thing back together.
Problems after case was bolted together: 
Cam and Crank weren't aligned ,  and the distrib. gear inside the engine was 180 degrees in the opposite direction.(so to fix we just changed the fireing)
 
After: the case leaked tremendously: I call a buddy and asked questions and decided to rubuild the engine again but do it correctly
