just how much should i have? i installed 81.25mm mahle powerpak's (i know its an odd size but i got a great deal on them). after looking the problem up many people have had problems with this issue after installing aftermarket pistons. i was able to fit a bit of copper sheeting in between the inside of the piston and the squirter and also between the bottom of the piston and squirter. i couldnt tell you the thickness of the sheet though. maybe around .25mm. the guys at the diesel shop said as long as theres some cleaernce it should be good. and to indicate i only checked it on squirter #4 as this seems to be the most problematic
