A basic rule is to never assume anything. Measure it! After the first gasket blew your troubleshooting should have included a trip to a machine shop to have the head checked with a machinist's straight edge. A carpenter's level won't cut it!
How about the block surface? Have you verified that it is true? Again, you can't just assume.
