Yes that's the one you want and just don't over torque the head bolts.

I'd use a good sealant like ultra copper or yamabond if you install the copper gasket the SS reinforced doesn't need anything.

Work complete installed new head gasket ported and polished the case and matched the head to the case I didn't remove to much material just smoothed things out. As i feel more confortable ill play with the timeing but the motor fired right up carb adjusted. Now I just have to wait to get out of work sleep a little and complete the break in process
