Craig, I'm only writing because I made the mistake...
I would say $hit-can the old pistons for new units because I reused my 40-50,000 mile pistons on my motor with new rings and it was not so great. On my cylinders, you could see at TDC and BDC where the rings had "extra"movement. There is defined lines where the rings were bouncing or getting smacked by the piston in the opposite direction. As for the cylinders, I would have someone (much better than I) measure them and re-use them if in spec. If the cyls are re-usable, just scuff them with a gray scotch pad. I would definitely make ash-trays out of the old pistons though.
