      Cylinder Head Decking

      Repairing cylinderhead old school way. Did not want to spend the $600 on valve lapping, cleaning, decking, General refurbishment of head. Head was warped so I decked it myself. ( YES I know the head could / should have been heat cycled to straightened.)
      Question:
      What is the bare minimum of the Head thickness?
      .
      ( from valve cover sealing face to head gasket sealing face.... no gaskets included.)
      I'm checking next to see how close the valve to piston clearance is.

      Time for a new head, or cut it more and buy a .020 shim. Junk yard head may be the way to go.
