Don't you need to heat them up (flame on) and anneal them prior to installation?

Yes that's recommended

Getting "dead soft" is key. Did you do standard thickness or drop it down a tenth?

Lani will tell you straight up to heat them to red hot then dunk them in cold water.  Annealing them is key to them working.  Also, spray both sides with copper gasket.

I did. The deck needs milled. My machinist is taking care of it.

I was able to get 0.0015 feeler gauge through there. My machinist said if I can get more than 0.001 it probably should be fixed. If I were using a composite gasket it would probably be fine. No worries. $30 plus shipping for a good seal.

By the way, Eastwood Pre Prep works wonders on threebond. I just used a plastic razor for the bigger stuff and wiped the thin stuff right off with eastwood pre.

That looks more than 0.0015", sure it wasn't 0.015"? (one and a half thou compared to fifteen thou)
 one and a half thou wouldn't be enough to cause a major leak (or even a mi or one)
Head was probably torqued in wrong sequence at some time, started on outside nuts instead of the 4 in the middle
