89 Honda Civic Head Gasket

Checking to see if anyone has experience on these cars.
About a year ago a friend of mine was given this car so he
did a overhaul on the engine then drove it for about seven months.
It blew a head gasket so we snatched the head off, had it reworked and milled to assure flatness. We used new head bolts and a fel pro gasket. This time it's ran a week and today when he was riding home it blew the head gasket again. The car hasn't ran hot, which is another part of it that mystifies. The engine is the standard 4 cylinder. My thoughts are the block is likely warped. However if anyone has any tips on why it keeps blowing the gasket any help is appreciated.
