When I ordered the engine gasket kit, I did get the various thickness gaskets. I set up the height according to the engine manual for the 250, which called for 1.2 to 1.3 mm from the top ring land to top of cylinder. The manual warned that too short a distance would cause "pinking" which I take to mean running too hot and causing pre-ignition, and of course too high would lose compression and power, but I didn't know that there would be an acceptable range. So I set according to the spec.
