LT4 LT4 Head Gasket Thickness (Crushed)

1996 LT4 Topic


Does anyone know the thickness of a torqued/crushed LT4 Head Gasket?
I know the LT4 had a different head gasket than the LT1 motors. They list a seperate PN & list it as with "Stainless Steel Fire Rings" I am sure the Stainless Fire Rings they are referring to are the portion of the gasket that crushes and seals the combustion chamber. This is where a person would need to take a measurment.
If anyone is interested an LT1 Head Gasket measures .050 thick when crushed.
