Overmilled heads now what?

Short story is I had the heads of to do a stud and gasket job, had the heads milled for flatness, kept bending the #5 pushrod so I took it to Ford and they tore every thing down and determined that the heads were overmilled and the valves were hitting.
What I am now wondering is if I buy a set of reman heads would this be worth while, or is there a high probability that there is lifter and cam damage? Meaning I need a crate motor?

I'd send the heads out to someone who is worth a damn. The valves need to be "recessed" to match the amount milled from the head...

I think Im just going to get remanufactured ones, this project has been going on for over three months, I just want to get some thing that will work and drive the darn thing.
My only concern was if there would be any thing wrong with any other components that would have been caused by the valve smacking the piston and bending the push rod multiple time.
I am also looking for reasonably priced remanufactured heads if any one has any suggestions as to where quality ones can be purchased.
