I just discussed this with Kevin Potter, who builds our engines, and he said 
I don't know what the hell I am talking about.  He actually said it much 
nicer, but that has more to do with our employer/employee relationship, than 
may lack of knowledge.

He said having figure eight gaskets manufactured to a particular thickness 
could have solved our 'stacking' problem last spring.  He said he wished he 
would have thought of it.  

He also said he wondered if steel would not be superior to copper 

He also wondered if there was another reason for not 'doing it.'

Shows you what I know!
