What are the things I should replace? Putting in a used motor.

My 92 2wd distibuterless 2300 motor needs head work but I have a guy with a complete low mileage motor. I'm def doing timing belt and water pump and cleaning injectors and fuel rail and filter and clutch. Is there anything else I should consider? I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this advise so I apologize. I also would like to know a good place to buy these items. Thank You.

Front and rear main seals(crankshaft seals) they are cheap.

Oil pan gasket.

These are hard to do when engine is in place.

When you pull the engine, inspect your tranny input items. If it's a manual, look at input shaft bushing/bearing(in crankshaft) along with throwout bearing and related items. If its an automatic, you could change the input seal. Like the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
