If its a fresh rebuild, then I woudl hope that the heads were machined, I doubt an old 2.7 went back together without being clipped. Also, if the screw jammed between the valve and seat, the seat may need to be replaced, since you will either have to grind or cut it to clean up the seat face, and by that time, the valve will be buried down in the head. Also, the guides are shot, and you need a new valve at the least. The contact with the piton may have dmaged the dome, twisted the rod, and pounded the rod bearing. So just keep that in mind.
