Core parts

I have a couple of questions for all you gurus.1) At the local core house this ole' boy has a set of 3 bar gt40's complete for $250, besides not having the relocated spark plug hole like the "p" heads is there a reason not to buy them. 2) He also has a couple of roller block 5.0. One of the blocks has a lot of oil sludge in the lifter valley, the other I can still see the lifter spider, my other question is if I buy one of the blocks do machine shops usually vat the block with all the lifter stuff still attached or can I take the them off and still get the lifters vated and cleaned? Or will it just be easier to dunk them in some carb cleaner. I was thinking about buying the block that was less sludgy. Thanks for any information.

The block needs to be striped before cleaning. As far as the lifters go, just relace them.
