I measured it and a 3mm thick gasket would be an improvement. However it would take a 6.2mm gasket to make it perfect. I would also have to cut almost the entire top of the jug to make up for this. Meaning that ill have to shave it down to the first cooling fin. And trimming the piston skirt will also be more that a 2mm job like I originally thought. I can do all of these moods but I’m running into trouble finding a 6mm thick gasket. I went to an auto parts store today and the thickest gasket maker they had was 1.5mm, which by the way is probably twice as thick as the stock gasket.

Any ideas?
