If you ran it without the engine cleanout cover off, it is like running your car without the fan belt. It would most likely overheat (if severe enough it would score the pistons/cylinders).I had taken the cover off the cooler and never put it back on
I agree that you should do a head gasket replacement and inspect everything along the way. It doesn't seem like it would be too difficult, but that is coming from someone that never did it on a Deutz.
