SOURCE: air compressor won't run
Don't run it with the head off! the cylinder will just up and down with the piston and ruin the seals again. I have three Craftsman compressors in my shop and I've torn them all down at least twice. Rather than pay for the kit, I went to NAPA and got a roll of cork gasket material and made my own seals. They don't last as long but they work great.
I'd be willing to bet your seal it just too tight. I made this mistake the first time around too. it's not a very good design as the piston tilts through the stroke. I would try putting a light coat of heavy weight oil on the cylinder wall and move the piston by hand to lube the seal.

I would say the head or block is warped. Use Majic Marker to cover the mating surfaces , the head can be rubbed on a flat surface like a cast iron table saw to find the high spots, or the head can be rubbed on the block.
Careful work with a good flat file will remove the high spots.
The torque value sounds low even for an aluminum block, you could check with a small engine shop to get their opinion.
