Paul great article and much appreciated. Not sure if you saw but I posted this in the performance section:

Supposedly according to some guys on TDR that if you simply torque to 125 ft/lbs (off the top of my head, I will need to double check) instead of the torque then 1/4 turn method described in the manual, head gaskets last longer? When I redid the head on my last 4BT(A), the head gasket kit came with a tool for measuring bolt stretching. I am pretty sure it was the first head gasket, luckily it had a lot more room for stretching..
