I use the same gasket twice and then replace it. But of course, replacing it every time is the safer way to go.

If you crank the engine over without the plug you should see oil entering the head.

Agreed. Mount the head with all bolts, including the oil pipe, then remove the right admission valve cover. Crank over without the plug and oil should be pouring into the top end.

Honda mechanics suggested that if the oil pump is not working properly the first part that will fail will be the non-pressurized lubrication of the head.
