Advice

Have a gm truck with 250 inline 6 non-integrated head. Recently, the radiator went south + head gasket. Also learned I need another head. Apparently my the valves on head were not set correctly; timing was impossible to get correct because of this. While I've got it down should I
also replace the lifters? Should I use stock, hydraulic? The engine was bored
.060 before I bought it? Could the valves being improper cause the lifters
to wear to quick? Thanks for all help
