you should never try to reuse a head gasket as they compress down when you torque the head bolts. the valve spring can be seen by just removing the valve cover plate that is behind the carburetor and looking at the springs to see if they are collapsed you can also check the valve clearance in the the same place, check the manuals section for procedure and specs. if the clearance is to tight it is due to the valve face surfaces being worn out, a valve job would be needed if this is the case.
