If you send the heads in for a rebuild. It is common for high milage Fords to need new rocker arms, valves, new valve guides, heads milled flat and shims/seals.
Your best bet for a high mile engine, on a budget, is to have the heads cheched for crack/warp and corrected. Replace valve seals. This will stop some oil consumption and will not effect the rest of the engine. You can then do the complete build at a later date.
