Hmmm.  That is another reason to do it with a single feeler spanning the
input and another single feeler spanning the exhaust.  I just checked my
pair of "matching" 0.30 feelers, both the same style gauge and from the
same manufacturer.  One was right on, the other was at 0.296.   Not much
of a difference, but with the micrometer locked at 0.30 the feel between
the two gauges was noticably different.

I checked my "long" feeler and found it was 0.308.   However, it was
0.308 at both ends.
