I have new lifters and pushrods now, and I'm waiting on break-in oil to start putting the new ones in. I'm taking the risk of leaving heads on to save the expense. Slow going project, I'll keep y'all posted, thanks for the input.
If you are dead set on putting it back together at least give the valves a thump with a dead blow or make a lever to push down on the valves to make sure they are not sticking but as mentioned earlier pull the heads and do a valve job I would imagine that the valve seals are shot.

I got her reassembled enough to start up, and once I got the timing set, it did start for me. Before I can really break it in, I have a 1000 piece puzzle to reassemble. Waterpump went on today. I am still concerned about sticky valves. I whacked on them some and turned it around by hand while I had the covers off. I also squirted Marvel Mystery oil on the stems. My hope is the break-in oil, seafoam, and fresh gas will clean things up; once I can run it without load. I need alternator, fan, AIR system in place next.
