Engine overhaul - 240D - What's the cost of overhaul?

1977 240D with 200k miles. Lot's of blow-by. The car runs OK. I was thinking of rebuilding the engine myself. I'm guessing one or more of the cylinders is bad. Any wild guess as to the cost of rebuilding the 240D engine?

First do a compression test and a leak test. Than you know how much life there is in your engine and if there is a specific problem with one or more of the cylinders.
