    sure you could but i don't know if you would want to.
    looks like you have to replace a couple bent valves and polish out the rough spots on top of the piston that hit the valves at a minimum, you may also have to get the valve seats machined/polish out any rough spots in the combustion chamber of the head.
    it may be cheaper to just buy a good used junkyard engine or remanned unit
