Please, DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER USING PAPER A PAPER GASKET. They leaked despite compound plus they would shrink, giving smaller valve clearances, possibly leading to an open valve and thus "burning"/ruining the valve.
Loctite #518 has been used for years with no problems. The clearance added is only 0.0005", which means it's negligible for determining the correct shim.
keep us posted, bruce
