overheat

I had a misfire that got worse. When it got to the point I was afraid to hit the gas I took it to a dealership. They said nothing was wrong. I took it to an alternative repair facility who within a few hours determined that the head gasjets needed to be replaced. After twenty nine days I got it back and it has been fine. The thing is it never overheated. I have tape on the guage and the needle moves about two millimeters once warmed up. Since the repair that the warranty paid for I have had a high rpm misfire. Recently I found the since they shaved twenty five thousandths from the heads I needed to go from the 764 autolites to a 103. Problem went away, like a new car. The shop that did my repair said they see quite a few of the dohc engines w/bad gaskets.
