Re: Head Gasket??
Have the head shop break the valves down out of the head and pockets,, get them to clean things up and apply dry powder flux, look for tracings of the powder. My guess is that composition gasket was leaking at the steel ring. That is a retorque style gasket. Might want to look at going to Permatorque gasket from Felpro.
My other thought is that your are over have way to a valve job . Why not look at that while you are there.. Maybe even go to thinner gaskets if it will not hurt? Worst case is block. Don't suppose coolant coming from around the studs or head bolts? You apply a sealing compound?
