I did Norms inserts as well.

This thread may help you if your using stock GM head bolts:

Also check the Tech Tips forum. There are a couple of head gasket tutorial in there that may be helpful to you.

go with Jake's studs. I have seen them installed by him. There is no substitute. On a side note, when my head gaskets blew, the studs that pulled out from the block had part of an insert still attached to the bolt.
