Setting Differential Bearing Preload on 9N

I'm replacing the right side axle trumpet on my 9N. The old gasket between the trumpet and the differential housing measures 0.014" thick. It's in good shape and I could either use it again or use new gaskets, which are 0.008" thick, so 2 would stack to 0.016" and I presume squish down a bit. I can't figure any way to measure the amount of preload on the bearing. What's the normal procedure?
