1200 hours is not much in my opinion...though you are taking his word for it. He is no doubt guessing as well.
Have a reputable mechanic start it up and listen to it and do what they think should be done. You can hear a bad engine.
I wouldn't put too much stock in an oil analysis. I'm more interested in how it sounds and how it runs.
