I ended up ordering new seals for the one side. I left the head attached to cylinder but loosed the nuts at 6 and 12 o'clock. The seal that was bad was torn longitudely about half way down. It might have been fine but then one never knows. The large and small o-rings looked fine and the head gasket was a little warped from hanging up on the threads of the studs as I was pulling the cylinder off but no real damage. It'll flatten back out as I retorque the head nuts. I cleaned off the head gasket reapplied Halomar and buttoned everything back up. Here's hoping nothing leaks.

Thanks for everyone's help. Maybe I'll get this project finished at some point.
