Gasket thickness

Does anyone know the crushed thickness of a stock thickness 12 valve head gasket?

Thanks

Wow! I didn't think they could crush quite that much. IIRC, thickness of the standards to begin with is something like .060". Do the .010" and .020" crush just as much or more than the standard?

That's prior to crushing. The OP wanted the dimension of one that had already been crushed.

I've got 3 well used ones sitting here that saw 150lbs of torque on the studs that measure .059", .059" and .058". Also have a couple of used .010" over gaskets that measure .069" and .069"
