Before you spend anymore money on replacing parts I would recommend getting the car to a reputable shop and have them perform a cylinder compression check to determine if in fact the engine needs a rebuild. IN the meantime if it has been sitting for over a year and half, the fuel isn't in the best of shape, add some fuel treatment and new gas if you can, or drain. Then you can decide if you want to cut your loses or repair properly.
