After taking head off for some positive seal work i see that the pistons have 060 on top of them . The bore is 3.72 and new gasket is 3.81 will this be ok or do i need to find a gasket that is for a 060 overbore ?

Hi, I wouldn't know if that gasket is the correct diameter. We are fortunate to have Bubba, who knows!

For your info the Fel-Pro is .048" thick compressed where the Victor Rentz-Carquest is .044" compressed.
Not a big deal but will up the compression slightly.

It is actually desirable to have the head gasket match the bore. They just mass produce gaskets and want to make sure the fire ring won't overhang with tolerances adding up and over bores.

Is there any manufacturer out there that does custom head gaskets for the 200?

There are probably a few that do copper gaskets and I thought I heard of one doing an MLS gasket, maybe Cometic, but dont know it they ever followed through with it.
