I always measure mine without the gasket, and make sure the distrbuter sits flush and not in a bind. Then add the gasket, you know you wont be too tight. If necessary you can get the proper shims to shim that up 1/16th or so. then add your gasket. This way you know the oil pump wont be in a bind. Do it the right way first, dont be grinding on stuff to make it fit.
