Just an update, took the head and gasket to a well known motor machinist in town today. He specalises in pre 1980's cars. He found a spot where the gasket has not aligned properly and where water had been leaking through. The gasket that was fitted was not the correct gasket for the engine, it did not align correctly in several places. So at least I am starting to make progress! The machinist is now in the process of locating a correct gasket and is going to machine the head as well. He was a bit concerned at the amount of water that the engine was using so he is also going to pressure test the head while it is off just to ensure it is solid.
