Warped heads are hard to see and any amount of warpage and you'll be doing the job a second time. I agree with Thomas - might be a hose leak or something as silly as loose hose clamp. Sometimes you can just grab a...
Couple of things you can do. Remove the spark plugs and add a couple of squirts of oil into the spark plug holes, maybe a teaspoon. This will help lubricate the piston rings as well as minimize any piston wall scoring from rust, which can develop during long periods of inactivity. Fill engine with fresh oil.

He did a great job of it, terrific work and was generous with his time and knowledge, answering my questions along the way. A suit I brought in was an entirely different ball game, however. Trouser had too much break and the jacket sleeves were very long. The sleeves were...
Thanks for the heads up deaddog. 30 is as large as they have at this point.
Likewise, if anyone has a 38R navy cashmere that doesn't work out as they expected. Thanks to the OP for the heads up on this sale regardless!
