One of the other things you may want to do is to build up the head gasket. I
have a jig I use for the 948 engines I ran. If you peal back the copper fold
around the cylinder holes and lay in some additional .005 inch copper wire,
the heads will handle the increased pressure much better.

Hi Larry,

  Sounds like you've had fun, sorta.  (BG)  You can bet that the head is
warped.  Take it and get it trued.  Any time a head gaske blows, the
head needs to be checked by a competent machine shop.    Since you
overheatd it, I suggest you have the shop take a look at the exhaust
valves & seats too.  Having it magnafluxed might be a good idea.  If you
didn't chamfer the stud holes in the block before, this is a good time
to do it.

  Have you thought about installing racing head studs & nuts?
