Some of you may know this anyway but if not, I thought I would inform everyone that Fel-pro makes a .020 soft copper headgasket shim for $25!! at Advance auto parts. I will be using this in between two standard head gaskets to restore the .070 I had previously shaved. With the positive deck clearance of my junkyard dog 2.9L I'm building I needed to restore the .070 to lower my compression to about 10.3:1 and most importantly to keep my pistons from hitting the head.Anyway if anybody else needs to alter compression cheaply this is a great product and it is cheap!!

FEL-PRO part number for copper headgasket shim

The part number for the Fel-pro copper head gasket shim for use on 280-260-240 is 21157SP.The package lists 1970-1980 engines, but I don't see why it would not work on 81-83 engines also.The fel-pro head gasket is aso a high quality part and its part number is 21157 PT-1 .it can be purchased for $17.59 at Advance auto parts.
