Not to do with the original topic but you mention checking the head for leakage. I presume you mean around the valve seats? There shouldn’t be any leakage so its worth taking the valves out and checking / regrinding the seats while it’s all stripped down. Has the head been converted for unleaded fuel? If not you may want to consider this as it saves the hassle of adding valvemaster stuff to the fuel every time you fill up. I did this to my 1955 classic years ago and it’s run well on unleaded ever since.
