Hello

I have a earlier (73) engine which does not have the revised oil connection O ring between cam carrier and cylinder head. I have recently changed the valves and carried out a decoke. On putting it all back together I am obviously re-shimming and have purchased the thin (0.012”) paper gasket to fit between the cam carrier and the cylinder head. Does anybody have experience of whether I need to use a jointing compound (eg Heldite) and how much extra shimming I need to allow for the compressed gasket?
Your guidance will be much appreciated.
Thanks
