As a retired electrical inspector I would have advised to do a complete rewire. Have home owner check with insurance agent to see if rewire would lower rates.

Since it's an old structure access to the rebar could be thru an old clay sump crock. They didn't use vapor barriers back then.

Keep in mind I ask this question knowing , zip, nadda , almost nothing about Ufer grounding.

Oh ya, if you have an old FPE pushmattic breaker, I'll buy it from you for,,,, ahh,, $73.56. I heard someone would pay nicely for one.
