Thank you. I will check the thickness
I was only able to find one available on eBayI used them in my alloy head LT1 with no issue.
The factory gaskets seem to be available from Ebay sellers
Going higher on the thickness would mean less compression. The thing I don’t know is if I go with a thinner gasket would there be any clearance issues? Going from .029 to .026.And why do we care ? .010 difference in these cars is roughly .25 points difference , so imagine putting the .050 F-Y body gasket in place of the .029 B body , you'd lose 1/2 a point!!
Obviously I am not an engine builder I was hoping to get all the right parts together so when I go to do the job which is a reseal on a stock motor with 80,000 miles. Just looking to get all the parts in the party starts I don’t have to go running around in search of. Any other suggestions on that mileage that would be good to address would be appreciated. From what I understand the valve springs are too good. Any recommendations in that department or anything else would be greatly appreciated thank you all.Going higher on the thickness would mean less compression.

No worries, this has been done multiple times since the early 2000s by numerous bygone ISSF elders with no concerns or issues raised.
From what I understand the stock valve springs or not too good. Have you changed Valve springs and if so which ones do you recommend?
I ended up ordering Mr. gasket head gaskets. And the felpro set for the rest. Thank you for the replyThe vast majority of ISSF posts prior to Aug of 2009 are not easily searchable.
That does not change the fact that the answer to your question about the Mr Gasket head gasket is
It's been recommended and tried scores of times, meeting or exceeding expectations each time.
I know it's not as good as links to past threads testifying to that effect ...
