30hp Kohler Rebuild

Well my season is over so it's time to tear down. The motor is a ch750 30hp Kohler on a 2006 exmark. It has about 1600 hrs on it. I bought it from another LCO. It had been sitting a while and when I got it it ran great, with just normal tune up. Well after last winter the problems started. At this point it uses a quart of oil ever 1.5 to 2 hours of running. It hasn't been that bad until recently so I decided to limp it the last month instead of trying to do a big rebuild during the season. So here I am. I plan to pull the motor off and put new rings, new valve seals, new reed valve, new governor shaft seal, and new gaskets and filters. My question is is there anything else I need to do while its apart. Should I get the valves and seats surfaced? Should I run a hone through the cylinders or leave them be? Just looking for some experienced advice. I've built v8's my whole life but need anything this small.
