Looks like some leakage to the pushrod tunnel but would that equate to a blowout or sudden loss of power?

You could do thatHow best to test stud holding? I'm thinking using a block of lumber, drill to pass the stud through, then fit some washers and the head nut, torque away to she if she holds. Sound like a plan?
With head on, would I need to worry about not having the gasket in place or micro grit getting mashed into head? Would have to do all the fittings to torque, not just the three studs, or risk warpage, correct?Torque is torque. If you have some hardwood and build up to big flat washers against the wood, you should be able to get to the prescribed torque. It's not much. The wood will crush a bit but so does metal, just by a smaller factor. Shouldn't matter as long as the Torque wrench clicks before the threads pull.
Or as Baz suggests, head on acid test.
Not difficult sans pushrods.
