Volvo MD2B Penta engine

Okay this is what I have.
I just pulled the heads on my Volvo Penta engine. I bought this boat with the engine locked up and the oil in it looks like a vanilla milk shake. The cylinder walls look good and I have put diesel fuel in the cylinders to work the piston rings loose. Once that is done if I can turn the engine with the front nut I can then start to get the lower end more freed up.
I'll change the oil and clean the bottom end. Change all the filters and install a better water separator and filter system for the fuel system.
I have a shop manual on order to rebuild the top end and replace the gaskets.
I just want to get the engine running and I don't need it to be pristeen just get me out of the ICW so I can sail the boat further south to really get to working on it.
Anything I have missed let me know.
