Did you replace the headbolts each time?
Torque to yield bolts wont hold a head gasket if re used.
Also the torque sequence/procedure is pretty important. I have done some pretty crazy ones.
When the torque spec sequence is 5-7 steps and requires loosening and retightening plus a specific degree amount past a certain torque ......gets pretty crazy.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
