Standard bore, new head, block and head planed. However, not torqued multiple times (20,30,40,45, run for 10, 45 again) or in the proper sequence which will happen this time. Plus he's using a spacer on the head bolts to make sure the gasket doesn't move.

Sometimes spraying the head gaskets with a thin film of Hylomar will cure leaks that shouldn't appear after a good rebuild. Spray Hylomar is commonly used at the Rolls Royce factory for the jet engine assembly. Severl members of the Oilburners.net forum use it to help seal head gaskets on the older IDI diesels. Those engines have around 500+lbs of cranking compression. My engine has 530 lbs.
