Head gasket thickness

Not sure what your looking for here. The gasket does not sit on the sleeve in this engine. I do not know the thickness of the gasket either new or compressed. The compressed thickness would have to be greater than the installed height of the sleeve. That spec I do not remember as I used the special installing plate which set height automaticly. It should be in the manual.

Can anyone tell me the thickness of the head gasket against the sleeve on a DT361 engine?  Want to make sure I received the correct head gasket.

Short answer: no.  That's not a spec that you need.  Different manufacturers, different materials..... you would never get a consistent answer.

If you need to know sleeve height, it's in the service manual.
