I have measured the piston protrusion on my 306 dturbo and number 4 piston only measures 0.3mm where as all the others measure 0.7mm, is this anything to worry about.

The gasket that came off has three notches should I just put the same back on or after a head skim just put a 5 notch on.

Thanks.

Maybe you have a bent rod on that one cylinder?

certainly something I would look into more especially if it has leaked coolant into the cylinder, 21.8-1 and water don't mix very well!

I never even thought about that, thanks for the advice as always.
