Thanks both of you.
As I live in Trondheim, Norway there is not any machine shop that has much experience with resurfacing on Porsche engines. I will take them to a machine shop where I can watch the process. I am aware of that you must remove the same amount on each side.
I am also aware of that there is copper gaskets of both 0,5 og 0,25 mm thickness. I guess that the standard ones are 0,25 mm. That leaves me with maksimum 0,25 mm to remove.

Anyone who has an anvice how to set up the head and cylinder when performing the resurfacing? For the heads I guess one way is to remove the studs that connects the head to the camshaft housing and clamp it down. Will that work or is there a better way?
I am not sure how to do it with the cylinder. Maybe make a "dummy" case and place the cylinder in it and then clamp it down to the desk. I hope you understand what I mean. I am lost for the right expressions in english.
