When I started this whole bizz I installed a new oil pump (This is before I knew the issues)
It was a high vol oil pump. Im wondering if I should reuse it or not. Pretty much all new oil was ran threw it but I worry about grit from the flat cam possibly hurting the pump or being inside the pump its self.... If i reuse I plain to PRIM the pump a few mins cycling any junk inside . The pump its self did not see more then a 1 or less of run time. What should I do?

Also Is it possible to install or change valve springs with the heads on?
The shop guy solid me bigger/stronger valve springs and told me to remove this upside down blow washer looking thing (Not sure what he called it) - I just ordered a valve spring compressor and wont see it for almost a weak - I dont want the heads of that long because the engine is in the house (Living room) and I have kids. We all know the saying (SOME PEOPLES KIDS) That saying was ment for my kids lol.
