Welcome to the Forum from Germany
To evaluate the restoration of an engine  Fotos really help a lot . A total rustbucket might be handeled like told above but there are many states an engine can be in between a rustbucket and a new unused one  Than we ca provide the Kind of advice your engine and her engineer are looking for

Photographs of my engine in it's current state.  

I believe my shopping list will be as follows;

Drive bands
Paint
Safety valve
Water level plug
Water level plug insert (current one stripped)
Chrome part of firebox
Pipework
Rivets
Decals

Cheers.

This is a complete resto job I suppose . you have to drill out the rivets to get all parts loosened and fix them piece by piece you might watch out for a second engine to get a new smokestack of. I never saw a sole stack on ebay  I wish you a lot of luck with the task
