O.K., based on the advise of the list, I opted to not try re-torquing my head, and replaced the head gasket. I checked for flatness with a straight edge, and the head is not warped. Now everything is

I believe that the tube shox you mention in the Moss catalog will work on later B's, but if I remember correctly, you must remove the rear sway bar on 77 and later cars. Regards, Chris
