Glad to hear your valves were not stuck.
As for leded gas, yes the engine needs it, especially if you intend to drive it as your primary vehicle, the led lubes the valves in the valve guides. When I rebuilt my engine, I had hardened seats, guides and valves installed, but you may want to talk to a machine shop and ask them if you need to do all that.
