Hope the title is not too long.

What parts should be replaced, or would be a good idea(convenience factor) to replace when you have a engine out for a rebuild. The engine is being rebuilt for me as a long block which will be returned with a rebuilt water pump, heads with the valve covers on, also with the oil pan on.

So far I have thought of the following list:

Distributor cap, rotor, points
Spark Plugs
Spark Plug wires
Engine mounts
Oil filter
Radiator hoses and coolant
Drive belts

Can anyone think of anything else? What will be the gaskets that I will need? I know I will need intake gaskets, and exhaust gaskets. Is there a gasket on the oil filter housing, anywhere else?

Thanks for any input.

Just off hand I would say replace those things hidden under the injection system such as a couple of rubber vacuum lines, rubber boots connecting intake manifold to injection system, injectors and sleeves, oil pump, water pump, new timing chain and guides, seals in front and back, new ring gear if old one has missing or messed up teeth, while engine is out, replace steering gear if needed, and convert A/C to 134a. Put in 5 year havoline coolant (orange stuff, oh yeah...replace the hoses for bypass that go into the firewall (should be 2?). Anything else that goes wrong is probably accesible after reinstallation of motor.

If you are doing this yourself, make sure that before you torque a bolt into aluminum, if you are working with a 2 inch hole make sure you use a 2 inch bolt. Otherwise shorter bolt will strip the few threads that it engages. If you find it necessary to install any thread inserts to repair a hole, spray paint with zinc chromate before installing (you can find it out at the local airport repair facility).
