I would keep the HG at only one. But you could either get a thicker jug base gasket, or possibly double up one. Just note, if you do space the base gasket, you'll have to make sure the water jacket sleeve oring is thicker also.

First, install the jug with the piston, and rotate the motor to TDC and see if the piston protrudes from the jug. If it doesn't;

Assemble the motor using the used gaskets, and there's some putty you can put on the top of the piston, rotate the motor slowly by hand and check to see if you have any interference issues between either the head/valves or piston Once you've made a few complete rotations, disassemble the motor and check the putty to verify you don't have contact with anything..

Orings are #13
