2000 450s stuck valve

had a no start and leaky overflow. finally did a carb clean(lemon boil and kit) cleaned tank new petcock (filter was trash) still no start.
Tracked it down to no compression(open /stuck intake valve)
The bike always had top end tick when warmed up after a low oil event.
when pulling the head is there anything i should be aware of beside new head gasket and proper torque
