You normally get seals in the headset so while valves are out it's worth doing

Depends on the condition of the valve seats if they are bad you are better off getting them recut, other than that i would lap them with fine paste just to be sure they are correctly seating

This is why most people just buy a good used head as the springs are so recessed you need a long compressor to refit them i have done a couple but i dont bother now a used head is quicker easier and cheaper.

Did look at a second hand head, but to be honest iv always wanted to do the valves on head just to see how everything come apart probably regret it next week when i do it lol.
