Why do you want to deck it? If you want 12.0:1 then you don't need to deck it. Check it for straightness (heads and block), and replace the head gasket. If it was running fine before, it will probably be within straightness spec.

You need to measure the head and block for straightness. Takes about $25 in tools. If you are within spec, then you don't need to take it to a machine shop. Just clean the head and block surfaces, and you'll be good.
