Get it to a real shop for major work like that.
not sure where in PA you are, but there are several very good shops on the east coast. Pasadena Diesel Repair is a great place and the names of a few others escape me at the moment, but hopefully someone will chime in.
Its not worth doing the work unless its done 100% correctly. Checking the heads properly to make sure they are flat(fords test is inadequate, bar stock and a feeler gauge, really?) and magnafluxing them in a must imo and installing hardened valve seats since they are prone to cracking.
