#3) Better the Devil you know... Spending $900 on the engine that you have will probably be much more productive than getting a whole new set of isues from a junkyard.

#4) Probably pretty good. - if there are actually no bent valves

#6) See 3 & 4 above. But if you find bent valves, remember that something bent them. - Meaning... replace the cam and lifters along with the pushrods and heads.
Shit happens. Carry a shovel.
