Customer Question

Mr. Cat Man, Can you tell me when it is necessary to use an undersizer spacer plate on a c15 engine. I have two different accert engines with reoccuring head gasket problems. Both of these engine have head horsepower upgrade to around 650hp and 2050 torque. I was just curious as to if the undersize spacer plate was developed for high horse power engines.

Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.
The undersized spacer plate was designed for engines that have been cut to the max for shims. When the largest shim has been installed and you only need a few more thousandths, the thinner spacer plate can be used.
I hope this helps. Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
