you can pick up reco heads from places like repco, but i think they're something in the order of $350 each plus your old heads. the spanner work is easy, these engines are life-sized mecchano (if you had that as a kid)

engine replacement would probably be easier, most likely cheaper (if you get one from a wrecker) but then you risk buying a dud. it's really something you need to weigh up pros and cons of each solution and go from there

oh and the easy way to check which head is to do a compression test
