    What type of feeler gauges do you use to measure piston cylinder gap?

    I have normal flat tab feeler gauges but 1: the feeler gauges do not go very small and two they are flat wide tabs. I would assume a stick type of feeler would be better since the cylinder is round. Let me know so I can get the correct feeler gauges to measure before I install.

    The blade of your feeler gauge should flex enough to measure for proper clearance. if not use a couple or three of the thin ones and add them up.
