You never know what has been done when you buy a used tractor. But few people replace the bolts (including me). That being said and without any history on the tractor, and a bad gasket, I would replace the bolts. A good precision strait edge can be used or take it to a shop that has the the means of checking it. I like to clean both surfaces real good and lightly sand both surfaces with emery to give the gasket a good surface to bite into. You might want to re torque the head after a few hours. This is just my way of doing it. Maybe someone else has a better idea.
