The leak was the original problem. The new gasket was exactly the same as the old one. I have actually changed the gasket twice. First time it leaked I skimmed/planed the head and pressure checked it also, replaced the gasket and bolts and it leaked as before. I then I took it off again and when I replaced the gasket I put a small smear of high temp silicone sealant around the problem area and installed the head and torqued it up, I left it alone for a week and when I started to drive it again it began to leak from the same spot. Any mechanic I talk to cannot figure it out.
