302 is out. What next?

I took my engine out to replace a leaking freeze plug. I am not sure if I should just replace the plugs and reinstall or if I should open everything up and inspect or replace.

The engine ran fine. I found a tag showing it was remanufactured but I have no idea how long ago or how many miles have been put on it. The casting numbers show that is is a '68.

I have already resealed the intake, valve covers,oil pan and replaced the rear main seal.

Should I be looking at the bearing, chain and bores or should I just put it back in? I am not really looking to spend money but it is out....

What are the weak links in a 302?
