Illustration 3 g02902277
(a) 2 Notches
(b) 1 Notch
(c) Without Notch
Make sure to note the notch (a), (b), or (c) of cylinder head gasket in advance.
Replace the same notch (a), (b), or (c) as the original cylinder head gasket.
When replacing the piston, piston pin bushing, connecting rod or crank pin bearing, select the cylinder head gasket thickness to meet with the top clearance.
Illustration 4 g02902343
Measure the piston head protrusion or recessing from the crankcase cylinder face 4 spots per each piston using the dial gauge as shown in figure, and get the average of the measurements.
Use the table below to select an applicable cylinder head gasket.

(3) Plastigauge
With the piston at TDC, use grease to affix three or four Plastigauge of a diameter 1.5 mm (0.059 inch) by 5.0 to 7.0 mm (0.20 to 0.27 inch) long to the crown of the piston; keep the gauges away from the intake valve and combustion chamber fittings.
Take the piston to an intermediate position, install the cylinder head, and tighten the head bolts to the specified torque.
Turn the crankshaft so the piston goes through TDC.

(4) Crushed Plastigauge
(5) Scale
Remove the cylinder head and compare the width of the crushed Plastigauge with the scale.
