I just came in from dorking around with it.  I dry assembled the exhaust cam after removing the gaskets and cleaning it.  Two of the valves, which previously had .008 clearance, now have nil, but I can turn the lifters.  The one valve which was had .009 has slight clearance, less than 2.  Those with less than 8 were tight.

So I guess it is about 8 thousands difference with no gasket.  Anyone have a shim assortment they can loan me for a couple days?  I'll pay shipping both ways and, of course, pay for the shims I use. 

Why use paper gaskets?  That's why I asked!  The guy at Delta said to use the gaskets but the JH service manual says don't.
