Default Normal engine wear? (pics incl.)

Am I in need of new parts here or is this normal damage? Engine is an AE .15 and there is only about a quart of fuel through it. It did sit for a couple of months, but that was with after run oil in it.

Looks fine.. engines will get coloring like that after awhile using after run or not.... especially when they set. Just check your crank pin with some calipers to make sure its still round and check for rod slop. Also check bearings for play and make sure they spin smoothly. If thats all well then lube it up and fire it up
