Default 89 bronco 2, 2.9 to 4.0 head swap or full swap

Hey guys I'm new to the small trucks of ford. I've done many swaps in older fords from 4.9's to 351w's and such. And now I have a bronco 2 with the 2.9. Well I have a chattering valve, it annoys the crap out of me. And I want it fixed. I can't seem to find any 2.9 liter heads anywhere and I heard that 4.0 ohv heads will work. Just wanting to make sure. And I also heard I can swap a 4.0 whole engine in with little modification. Any help would be appreciated. I can't even get hard on my gas without the valve getting to much stress and start missing.
