Still very confused

I have thought about stripping my engine down for ages but time is always an issue, however, I am pretty certain that I now have a bearing that is rattling. This morning after chasing the car for a few miles the oil pressure light blinked at me while waiting at traffic lights, I got home checked the oil, which is OK and started the engine, it always starts well and no obvious sounds and the oil light goes out immediately but if I rev the engine I get a rattle on the transition.
So, my question is, do you think I will be able to get away with new shells, or will it be a rebuild.
I do wonder if it is worth spending money on it to be honest, but its in nice condition and has served me very well. The annoying thing is, I was thinking about changing it earlier in the year.
