I am replacing my cam cover gasket and the new rubber half moon plugs for the back of the cam cover are taller by 1/16 inch and narrower than the original ones that are there now. I know 1/16 inch in height does not seem like a-lot, but it does make a difference here. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thank You.

(edit, originally had 1/8 inch should be 1/16 inch)

Don't worry, they'll squish down and seal. I just replaced my gasket and had the same non-issue, Don't overtighten the cover hold down bolts-choke up on your 17 mm wrench and then drive the car a bit. If you have any leaks, just give 'em a tad bit more.
