Inspect for cracks in cylinder webs between cylinders. Seems to be a common problem. I a TE 20 like that rite now. Otherwise mine is a very good engine.
As for dirt, mud, rusty metal shavings or other unnatural debris in an engine is simply the result of "professional service providers". I've found 6 feet of 1/8 steel rod under valve cover of very streight nice 8 year old origiginal looking AMC engine. Multitude of Valve keepers, old plastigauge wrappers in oil pans, watches and jewelery and ink pins in tires. U name it. It's the nature of vehicle service for hire.
As long as the block isn't cracked u can rebuild it. Pressure (or static check for several days) for coolant leaks from around BOTTOM of sleeves and webs between cy;inders. Chances are if webs not cracked at top then bottom ok. But need to check.
