    FULLY DISASSEMBLE, HAVE IT HOT TANKED, AND GET THE CYLINDERS HONED OR BORED.

    You mean rust on the cylinder walls? If so, you can have the cylinders honed. And while you're at it, get the heads resurfaced.

    depends on how bad the rust and how long you expect the motor to last, you can pop the heads and oil pan and get to work wipe it down use marvel mystery oil and a good rag. wipe where you can rotate the engine keepdoing that till its all clean then leave some mystery oil in the cylindrs put back together get it runnin asap and let i get nice n hot for a while to burn all that moisture out. rule of thumb it takes a teaspoon of dirt to destroy an engine and dont forget to change oil filter after a week then two
