When you have the surfaces all nice and clean and start to assemble, make certain you have the head gaskets installed correctly. The consensus is that the original steel gaskets are to be avoided in favor of the composition gaskets.

Scotch brite shouldn't be used, the particles it sheds are abrasive.
