New set of Total Seal rings. The instructions with the ring set say .0015 to .003 clearance required for the ring to groove check.
I can get a .0010 shim stock in there, but not a .0015. So it appears to be a little tighter than what they asking for.
Should I be concerned and or try to make adjustment to the ring thickness via 'lapping' or similar?
both top and 2nd check the same way. The rings are all very consistent in thicknes when mic'd to within a tenth.
