Thumbs down 2001 engine rebuild

So I just acquired a second XJ. An 01 automatic 4wd. last registered in 2010, previous owner's title reads 180k miles from 2006 I believe. I was told the oil pump was bad on it. The previous owner started tearing it apart but only got as far as removing the oil pan. It has been sitting in dirt for a while and here's where I'm at.

I removed the engine finally after fighting with the E12 screws. Otherwise everything came out easily. I've only done top end rebuilds before so I would like some help on what to check if this was really a bad oil pump.

I will be getting some pictures of the crank and pistons tonight to show their conditions.

and how it sits for now
