 You can use Plastigauge. You want around .002" clearance. Clarks provides it in there kit. I've found it's not critical as you'd think. The stock pump works very well as long as the housing and gears are in good shape. In fact they work so well that it will blow out oil filter gaskets easy if the regulator sticks open. I've seen more than 120psi even with a remote oil cooler with the stock pump.

 I am trying to figure out which thickness of gasket I need for the oil pump cover. How do I preform the thickness test? Many thanks in advance. John Gull confused in Asheville NC
