I just ran into one of my former co-worker homies, and they:

1. (Seem to have) FIXED THE IDLE. IACV electrical connector was not plugged in...

2. Told me my "Distributor was too far advanced," told me how to adjust it, demonstrated by letting me hear a "pop" sound when revving, told me that I should adjust it soon because it can damage the motor.

Nice...

That's not a good sign

Combustion gassses in the radiator aren't good. At first I thought on the first drive it may have been burping ... but it's definitely combustion gases.

Block/head mating surface. Gasket isn't blown since you just put a new one in but the head may be warped or the head may not be uniformly on. The problem with using a different sized bolt, or timeserts/heli-coils is if you torque it to factory spec, it may be off a bit due to being a different setup than from the factory.

Just one reason I don't like aluminum engines; that wouldn't have been a problem at all on a cast iron engine.

Compression is probably good because the coolant that ends up making its way into the cylinder(s) is helping raise compression a bit and masking it.
