It sure does help "knowing all this stuff" if one wants a working engine only one way to learn, through miserable failures! It will be alright.

Probably not nessecary to check squish on a stock motor unless they remove a lot of material from the head. The dowel pins are a known source of head gasket leaks on kawi. Sometimes they are too long preventing the head from seating fully. It's rare but it is common enough I would check.
