to give you and estimate most would need to know more about the cam, adv duration, duration @ .050, LSA/LCA, you mention that a .015 head gasket is or was what was on it, but that a .040 makes 8.6:1, are you replacing the gaskets? if so before you go using a .015 gasket check you quench and if you dont have atleast .020 deck clearance then you will need a .040, world product heads used to be the heads to have about 10-15 yrs ago, but they are very outdated with todays iron heads, you also mention a single plane vic jr intake, i dont know the rest of the specs of the cam but this sounds a little mismatched, i would have gone with a eddy RPM intake or similar dual plane, and last a 750 holley is overkill for this motor, a 650 is more than enough to handle most 350's
