Jut pulled the engine out myself yesterday. It's in the back of my pickup now. I am not sure it's worth it for me to take on the rebuild. I promised my wife that I would renovate the bathroom this winter. Even though I rebuilt a 4cylinder gas engine in my teens I consider myself a novice at that. Given a choice I would probably rather work on the engine if I had all the fancy measuring tools. So, I am leaning towards full rebuild by a erengine rebuilder machine shop.
