Looks good.
Now smooth them out as far as you can go.
No need to polish them out though.
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

I've heard that intakes shouldn't be polished but should be left Rough.

I've got the exhaust ports as smooth as I can get them with the finest grit drums I could find for my Dremel and finishing with the buffing tool

Looks good.
The nasty lip just under the valve seat is the best place to clean up.
It will provide the most impact into what you are doing.
A smooth transition is all you need from the seat to head material.

Prego on the refurbish of the distributor.

-But-

You put the hood on wrong.

This is my favorite engine calculator...
https://www.uempistons.com/index.php?main_page=calculators&type=comp&zenid=9764867018c1baafe0b5cf0e637a0df0

It also does the dynamic compression ratio....

It does say the same compression ratio as yours.
3.56" Bore
2.99" Stroke
50 cc Combustion Chamber
.063" Gasket Clearance

Now you just need to add your rod length and the other one is from the cam card for the cam you are going to run to find the Dynamic Compression Ratio...

After finding a head was cracked by the push-rod tubes....I ordered a new one from Kustom1.  I may never use them again though.  They take fOREVER to fulfill an order...on the upside, I am getting a complete head for the price of a bare one.

should be here Friday.  I mighty get this thing running this weekend.
