What is this engine for?  

Wouldn't it be cheaper and more reliable to replace the engine and or

As stated by others, the cylinder is probably scored and/or the piston
rings shot.  You could probably hone the cylinder and replace the piston
and rings.  But that would probably cost more than the engine is worth.

It's also possible that there could be damage to the piston rod, and
main bearings.  As I understand it, the oil that is mixed with the gas
also lubricates parts within the crankcase.
