Is This Gasket Ok?

It's say 3mm too big all the way around. Will it compress to size? Can't remember how it's supposed to be!!

I have had problems with that gasket on my ported 1275 head. I had no suction through the carbs although with the manifold off there was plenty. I appears that the manifold was barely(not) sealing because of the size of the inlet holes in the gasket, Having measured up the standard gasket is only a fraction of a mm too small so I'm going to try trimming the inlets holes back a fraction to clear - then I will have a much better sealing area.

Off topic, do people run those LCBs unpainted? Don't they rust away rather quickly?

Had mine zinc plated - cheaper than chrome and handles heat better.
