Deglaze the cylinder, wash with "Dawn" soap and water and wipe the bore with paper towels till the bore is clean, then dry cylinder with a hair dryer or heat gun.
You should get new rings, you'll never get them back in the original position, then check the gap on them.
Always use a factory head gasket! Be sure your head isn't warped, a common problem, and machine as needed.
Check the TB rubber intake boot for cracking or defects. Don't overtighten the clamps.
Be sure you're adjusting the correct screw on the TB, most people turn the wrong one.
Be sure to bleed the coolant from the water pump and head as well as oil from the head.
When warmed up, look in the top of radiator for turbulence.
