First your going to want to clean the engine. Blow out all the lines and ports with compressed air to clear the passage ways.
You could build an engine cradle out of wood to sit in? Mist with oil and cover with plastic.

I'm not really doing much to the block, pistons, crank, rods. So if anyone wants any of those, if they're in any decent shape (it spun a bearing i think) they can have them.

If i can find something at a store aroudn $40, that'll be good, Otherwise i'll just set it on some stuff.
