when to crack the case

I see where they steamed it off nicely but when I took all the external tubing, hoses, etc off I see buildup of past leaks.
Got the heads off and the cylinders have no ridge and there is no sign of oil passing the rings. My thought is to have the valves done and change all the now exposed o rings. I dont really know how many miles are on the motor but it rolls over and feels tight. I think the biggest job is getting it in the car, hooked up, and running. If I got even 20k miles out of it then that would be a few years for me.
Any thoughts on this subject?

any used block is good with up to 300,000 miles
tip of advice: do not replace the rear main seal if it is not failed. it will more likely outlast a replacement seal that is tricky to install properly.
