test compression of eng it should be a minimum of 100lb with a min of 40lb varence between cyl. if that checks out your cam set up should match intake rpm band. the springs valves head and cam should be done at the same time. (aggrivation of haveing to tear into it another time.) not to say post above was a bad idea at all but pull the heads once and be done with it if the lower end is in good shape.
