Most stock heads have the stud boss holes going directly down into water jacket area, so yes, that is normal.

yes that is normal...next time make sure you use some non hardening permatex #2 or some teflon paste. i been using the #2 but my machinist reccomends teflon paste. i couldnt find it so i didnt use it. But i hear you can locate it at any hardware or lowes stores.

make sure that it wont affect your torque readings. Some engine assembly products will mention if it will or will not affect your torque readings.
