Hence my comment about head gaskets.

3 thou on 24" is considered to be flat tolerances for a Cincinnati mill. You can probably move the head that much by hand. So you ignore the proper torque sequence and tighten the odd spot first.

Went back to the first post, missed the reason for disassembly. I saw where it was said the gasket was blown, but how was it diagnosed? Compression test or puking fluids or internet?
