Hi Pete . great project. i had great success using Bentleys repair manual. overhauling those items will prolong the cars life\ and improved drivable. I recently found you can solve gasket leaks by using a Small bead of High temp gasket sealer on the outer edges of gasket then let dry 1 day after instalation . I have even used High temp bearing grease rated for seawater. It has kept the new gaskets conditioned and mostly sealed.I think its the back leg lobes of gasket that can be problematic. The 14 I think rubber grommets to seal the bolts are a must have for a complete gasket change. Any one of them can become fatigued and leak.
