Well, to clean up that rust you'll probably have to bore it out, if not resleeve. For internals, you can get a forged rotating assembly for stock displacement from MMR for about 1500. What do you know about the block? You might want to think about having it inspected for cracks and pinholes or you could find yourself spending a lot of money

You should re build it. I personally would have it bored 10 over, new Pistons and you have a "new" short block. Or disassemble hone the cylinder walls, new rings and re assemble. Either way the block should be inspected for cracks and defects.

If I bore it 10 over what pistons and rods do you recommend how far can the stock crank go or should I get a new one?

Don't stop short. Go forged the whole way. You don't want to be limited after all that.

Take it to a machine shop and have them look at it. I recently had a Teksid block bored and two of the cylinders wouldn't clean up at .020 so I had to replace two of the sleeves... And it didn't look anywhere near as bad as your block!
