I would check and make sure that none of the alumm that stripped fell down into the piston or the piston housing... as much as it cost to buy the head and gasket.. u can send it back in the replacement program and get another engine..

i would remove the back plate and rinse it off the inside with wd40 or nitro gaz. soak it real good.
Be sure the bearing are all clean and free rolling.

That might sound just too much work (since the engine did not run since) but thats just me.
Also give you a good oportunity to look at wear in your engine...

Just my opinion.
