and which head gasket?
GM steel shim is about .022" thick.
Felpro composite gasket is about .039" thick.
other factors: piston deck height, head chamber cc's.

in the case of a LS6 crate engine #366250 from the 80's-90's- it had closed chamber piston with open chamber head. compression was listed as 10.25.

check the little "o" rings on the needle & seat assemblies. they get hard and brittle and don't seal.
they are a difficult piece to find separately.
best to replace the needle and seat assemblies.
i've got some from this guy and they work great. fast shipping too.
these are correct for 4053 carb.

no the bolts did not bottom out. i just customarily use a flat and a lock on this type of attachment. clutch was purchased new by me and has seen lots of duty. all ran very straight and smooth. i believe this fan is original to the car. i'm not going to weld it. it's wall art now. i'll find a used one someday.

right, ok for show car but i would not want to have it hurt someone down the road. i was very lucky it didn't hurt me or anyone else. could have been really bad had it happened on the track. we were doing some spirited driving in the pits checking something out and it let loose. check your fans, guys.

in this pic you can see where it was cracked to the right of the right hand bolt. it just let go. luckily it went down and to the right in the area of the lower rad hose.
