If you decide to replace the head gasket I would recommend getting a Felpro gasket. I am sure others will work but Felpro is the best I have ever used and I have never had one leak. NAPA as well as other places sells Felpro. It is a soft gasket. I spray it with copper coat spray also sold by NAPA. I have had a TISCO full metal gasket leak and replace it with a Felpro and never had a second problem. RE-torque once or twice after running for a while.

Well, I bit the bullet. 1- pulled the head
2- had .008 milled off ($50). Had some warped. It took 5-6 passes at .001 for the milling machine to to get it clean
2a - checked to make sure pistons did not hit head
3- Bought a Felpro gasket ($16) as recommended
4- Sprayed both sides of the gasket with copper gasket maker
5- cleaned block and head with acetone
6- Torqued to 75 lbs cold engine
7- ran it for 15 minutes
8- torqued to 75 lbs warm engine

It looks great so far.

Thank you all for the advice. I think this should be the recommended procedure for novices
