Inline 6 may have a warped head, or the block may have to be deck milled, some shops don't have the equipment to replace the cam bearings, or they just have sent it out for pressure testing and magnaflux testing, talk to them about it, they should notify you if something is out of the usual.

1977 is still a carbed engine so most likely it needs a carb overhaul. !977 was a little bit crazy as far as emissions were concerned, Ford had a heavy duty half that was catalyst free and all of the 3/4 tons were exempt. HTH
