Hi Vaughn,

I wasn't suggesting to re-use the gasket, but just commenting that I think there is some spring-back that would make it difficult to accurately determine the compressed thickness of the installed gasket by measuring a used gasket.

I agree wholeheartedly that a head gasket should not be re-used, although apparently folks have successfully done it with certain types of head gaskets, not uncommonly, but I wouldn't do it, certainly not with the kind I'm talking about.
