No.

0.060" is slightly less than 1/16" (0.0625"), but VERY close....

Are you also trying to figure out how so little can be so crucial on an engien too? When they put it in decimals... a .030 over bore doesnt sound like a lot does it?

Thanks for your help. I thought it was right around there. Installing intake tonight and wanted to make sure the gaskets I had on hand would fit my engine rebuild. Had intake polished and chrome plated by Advanced Plating out of Nashville. They recommended 60 thousands thick gaskets. Chrome job came out beautiful

Intake gaskets are pretty standardized....unlike head gaskets, which can be purchased in various materials and thicknesses...

Any pix of the shiny intake?

Take a calculator and divide 1 by 16. That is the easy way to convert fractions to decimals.
