My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

If you shave it that much, use a thicker head gasket. You are also just at the edge of spec for that as well. If you go 14 thousandths or more, you have to replace the head for the head will be compromised and not seal well at the valve. Your maximum on that engine is 12 per the book.
