Engine Mechanical problem
1969 Jaguar E-Type 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 86890 miles

this is a 4.2 double overhead cam engine. There is interference between the valves and the pistons because the cylinder head was machined too much. Is there a thicker gasket that can be used to bring back the clearance and if so do the torque values change if used? Is there another remedy?
Thank you

Only option would be to purchase another head i'm afraid !
