It did crack around the rim, however this wasn't his first overhaul, I'm sure he didn't press them in however it is possible that it may not have been clean enough but not likely, he said the protrusion was within spec.
John, this was one of those made in china kits from Korves, I would have to ask about the head gasket all I know is it was one of those skinny ones.

Very well could be the head gasket firing ring if poor/brittle material used. Being 75 and not familiar with the Chinese kits I have not seen the head gasket problems. Not a nice deal but nice to know that it could be the problem.
