While there is an excellent chance that your valve guides will have to be replaced, there is also an excellent chance that your pistons and cylinders will be within specification, which could save a lot of cash. Be careful not to nick anything during disassembly. Check the cylinders for scratches, diameter and taper. If they are OK, I would certainly consider re-using them.

For sure you will need new rod bolts, and then there is the head studs. Do you have the original Dilivar ones?
I was going to reuse all of the old stuff. How can I tell what they are? They're black, and none are broken. I was considering replacing the rings since they are so inexpensive.

You can tell on this one that no.1 was leaking pretty bad from the head.

(don't mind the lack of a yoke and engine stand.. those are on order)
