I can't and wont speak for everyone, but in my case. I purchased nearly everything minus the bearings before dropping off the motor. The only other real concern is the pistons and rings. The cylinders will have to be mic'd to determin the size of the replacement pistons and rings.
So you can make arrangements to drop off the topend minus the carb. Full rebuild gasket kit, oil pump, freeze plugs, cam, distributor, timing chain, new balancer and the block. Have the block mic'd and then order the new pistons and rings.
Let the shop determin the correct mains and cam bearings.
Have em line bore the block and balance the rods and crank.
They'll appreciate not having to order everthing, your motor will be done sooner, you'll know what was put into it, and even though you didnt do the actuall build up.. you still contributed to it.
I my case I had them do the short block and I finished the build and installed the motor.
