As much as I hate to say it, it was not a good idea to take in heads with that many miles and not have them magnafluxed to check for cracks. Being it was already pouring water out the first time should have been a sign there was more wrong that just a bad valve as valves wont cause water to come out of the exhaust. You'll have to remove the heads and have them magnafluxed, if they check okay and you wish to reuse them then they will need to be surfaced to get the decks level. You will also have to check the blocks decks for flatness, if you find anything over .002 on the block deck it will need resurfaced as well which means it will have to come apart so you may as well do a rebuild.
