as long as it isnt to bad you could sand it. i would try to be careful about getting to much junk in the motor. maybe plug some holes and cover with rags. i also would try to not take to much material off. just enough to smoot it.

Re: camshaft

If you have a lifter bore that is roughed up bad enough to require sanding or honing you really need to tear the engine completely down to do that. Any debris in that area will get into your oiling system and get carried to your bearings. Plus, if you remove too much material there it will leak oil badly around that lifter and it may not pump up enough to work properly.
