Merc 2.4 Learning/project

Right, I've brought a 2.4 unit which I intend to take apart and have a go at re-building as I fancied learning how they all work to be honest, and if all goes well stcik on the boat next summer
So far I've just buggered about really but as advised I can see that I need a new head, piston and a sleeve, first question is whats the crack on chrome, I'm sure I've read somewhere that if you use steel rings then you use a chrome sleeve or visa versa. Can someone advise, and also recomend someone to do this when I've had my fun.
Probably the first of many easy questions but at least I'm having a go!
Cheers

Thanks for the link, quite interesting. I think when I get the block back I'll have a go.
