Cool Thanks Larry

I alraedy have three new filter and two cases of oil and will change the oil three times in the first 1000 miles to be safe. I really don't think grit material got in the engine. I was extra caerful and used a tape and a shop vacuum to block the water and oil holes.
Question:
I will the oil pan tomorrow. Is it possible to spray inbetween the piston and piston bore with a cleaner. I am istalling a new oil pump and chain. I have noticed a big oil spot on the block wall below the exhaust manifold for cylinders 4,5, and 6 and also in the back of the head which suggests a leaking head gasket. The machine shop also mentioned that the head was slightly worped in the middle and they machined 0.007 of an inch off the head surface.
