Shheeeeiiiiittt. If I were in that position, I'd find a 990 donor and just change out the few parts you need to make it work with carbs. I spent $1,500 on mine just to redo the top end and replace the cams with 990 cams. While your cams may be OK and not pitted, you still have a lot of coin to spend to get it running again, and you have the Pyndon syndrome on the cases. Yep, I'd find a power plant from a suitable organ donor and call it a day.
