My engine builder told me that he used .039 Fel-Pro head gaskets in my DZ rebuild. It is standard bore, block not decked, standard pistons and rods. Is that head gasket too thick? How far is the piston down in the bore in an original engine? The engine is still on a stand so the head gaskets can be changed easily.
