Should be fine with just gaskets but one thing I would do is make sure you don't have a warped head.

One issue with head gaskets is making sure both the head and cylinder are very clean and dry plus not touching the gasket on the sealing surface..

I would put aftermarket valves and springs in if you have not already.

What???? I'm not getting paid for all this advice????? LOL


I always use stock gaskets and don't have trouble.

If Big Kev did it you should be fine. Still check for warpness anything could happen.
