That's awesome! The machine looks like it just rolled out of Walmart in 2005!

Full tear-down and rebuild if it were me.

I'd want to peek inside of that sump and give the crank and cam a good inspection and also remove the rings to give the piston a super thorough clean; those ring journals are probably packed with crud. There's a special order that those rings go so keep track; IIRC the compression (top) ring has a chamfer.

you can buy gasket kits that have the sump, breather, muffler, intakes and head.

Carb and tank have been cleaned and oil drained. At this point what should I do? Thanks for any help.
I see some debris under a valve in the last photo..be sure to get that out.
As far as the bore condition...keep cleaning and clean some more.. I would use a light oil such as kerosene ..to keep the particles from going past the piston..plastic brush or similar.
Clean the valve seats with the valves open..work your way around.
I think you can get it running..but it will burn oil.

Edit
I just looked again and zoomed in.
It's not as bad as it looks..little more cleaning and its good(20minutes)...be sure to clean valve seats up as well.
Oil consumption will be acceptable I think.

It looks like it will take some time and a lot of clean up work and it can be brought back from the dead again, the "Frankenstein Motor".
At least its a cheaper older engine, and those are the ones you can usually bring back to life again without costing too much money, and probably get a few years of usage out of it.
If you have the time and patience, it would be like a hobby to work on it, but chances are it will probably run again, I have seen worse brought back from the "Dead" and they are running now.

What does the oil look like?

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Finally had some time available to take a peek at the crank. Better looking then I was anticipating. Ready to pull the piston and look at the ring. db9938,here’s a shot of the oil.

that looks pretty good to me. it will be interesting to see how the bore cleans up. with the piston out.

Scoring on the piston and in the cylinder. More then likely from the removal of the piston. ****!

did you use any lube or penitrating oil while trying to remove it? definitely looks like it needed it
