the sequence is just start in the middle and go around in a circle till done. torque in three steps. i would do 40, 80 and then 110 ft lbs. the adhesive i use is permatex high-tack sealer. it is oil and gas resistant and holds the gasket in place. i have never had a reason to use coppercoat other than on bolt threads. many do use it on head gskts. thats another thing, make sure the stud threads are lubed with coppercoat, or neverseize lube. also once you get it running retorque the head and re -adjust valves to .017 once run for an hr. or so at half throttle. do adjustment while engine is still warm. have you removed valves from head and checked guides and valves and seats. also make sure no rust in guides. check the head for warpage with a straightedge also since it had a blown gskt.

I checked the head with a straight edge and it looks good. I think the gasket went because it wasn't torqued properly. Some of the bolts were barely on. They came off with a tap on the wrench and finger power.

The cylinders and pistons were carbon free except for number 4 which must have had a combustion problem. The valves were completely out of whack so that probably had a lot to do with it. It didn't appear that anyone had been in the engine a long time and I guess they must have worked themselves off.
