    Replacing Head Gasket

    I am replacing my head gasket and head bolts. I want to get the head checked and decked. What is within spec/tolerence as far as them checking the head surface when they use the straight edge and feeler guage? 0.0010? 0.0025? I thought it was in the manual but it does not appear to be.

    Thanks
    Eric

    needs to be flat, my machine shop said you dont check air in a flat tire you just pump it up.... there are wear marks on the cyl head. take enough off just to get it flat

    NOt sure if you know but the case will have to be cracked if you need to deck the block.
