Would this be a potential engine out or in situ job?

Roger,  checking the valves and such is definitely done without removing the  
engine. The same with removing the head. But checking the bearings  requires 
removal of the sump - and several bolts are blocked by the  crossmember, 
meaning that you'd really need to loosen the engine mounts  and jack the engine 
up a bit. If it were me, I would start at the top  with the valves and work my 
way down. If I had to check the bearings, I  would remove the engine unless I 
had a lift or pit so that I could  stand up under the car.
