I agree with Blue. After the amount of work to swap the heads out, I would just look into a full re-manned that has updated heads.
Also agree about the radiator. They have plastic caps on the ends (like, the entire sides, top to bottom are plastic) and those only get old and brittle over time. Your's might still have great flow for air and coolant still, but plastic ages and when a radiator fails more often than not it's a cracked side. Plus, it's an easy enough swap with the engine out and they are less than $200
