You would need a thinner head gasket to bring your quench down, ideally to somewhere in the area of .040 to .050 in your case. However, you said the block is decked at .040. That seems kind of high to me. Most stock blocks are .020 to .025, unless the engine has been rebuilt and the pistons are sitting lower.
