Default New Engine...what all to ask?

The 3.7 engine in my 02 Dodge Ram didn't last very long.....140k.....
I'm getting a rebuilt put in this week. I want to insure my mechanic 'does' all he can while 'in there'....For example, I would presume that he'll install new spark plugs, but can't (won't) assume he will.

I want to insure he knows (by me inquiring) that I know what to look for.
I'll ask him to (1) replace the o-rings on the fuel rails (2) replace hoses (3) serpintine belt is fairly new, so I don't need a new one..(3) Clean the throttle body (4) flush the heater core....etc.....

The long block comes from a reputable company.
Give me your list of things to inquire about....
