Its all in the Haynes. Quite a few bits need replacing I'm sure - once you have it opened up.

line boring, head skimmed, to be honest lots of it probably isn't worth doing unless its neccesary, my uncle rebuilds engines for a living.

for the red top just change simple but important things like cam belt+rollers, oil filter+oil, possibley water pump etc

unless the engine is allready showing signs of a problem its not worth changing loads of things, will cost loads of money and could be unneccassary

If its a high miler or your going to mod it alot then its worth while.

Change the BE bearings, mains if they look worn at all, rings, hone, top and bottom gasket sets, water pump, cam belt, rollers, check oil pump, clean lifters, check everything else. Make sure everything is keep very clean throughout.
