reinforcing/waterproofing basement

the cinder block foundation in my almost 100 year old home has some areas where the blocks are crumbling a bit. anyone know the best way to rebuild or reinforce these blocks?

scrape off the loose stuff and fill cracks with hydraulic cement and then is there another product to trowel on the surface of the blocks to give them strength and better water sealing? i have my roof draining pretty good now and good drainage away from foundation, so there isn't much water which comes in through foundation walls.
