I'm reassembling the engine of my SY1 but I have a nip problem.
I have changed all the liners seals, cylinder heads have been resurfaced.
Now I'm checking the nip before putting back the cylinder head with obviously new head gaskets.
My problem is that the nip should be between 0,05 mm to 0,075 mm according to the manual.
Currently mine is more between 0,10 mm and 0,15 mm. How bad this is ? What should I do ?

Thanks for your help.
