Help set the 8.3mm height from the nozzle. I believe the newer Smart BL Touch has a 8.5mm distance, from shoulder to tip of probe.

BLTouch Home & AutoLevelling Classic (White colour)
BLTouch is an auto leveling sensor for 3D Printers based on open-source. It could work with any kinds of bed materials, such as glasses, woods, metals, and so on.
Self-test : The push pin operates itself three times to test when the power is on.
Alarm : The LED light blinks if a problem found on a self-test or on an operation.
BLTouch consists of Atmel ATtiny13A, solenoid, and a push pin.
High-precision Type Sensor : Using Hall Effect
➡ Not optical, either proximity(inductive or capacitive) one.
The BLTouch needs to be set at 8.3mm (+/-0.2) above the nozzle. I believe the newer Smart BL Touch has a 8.5mm distance, from shoulder to tip of probe.
This simple 3D Printable gauge should help you achieve this.
Remember that this BLTouch gauge block will need to be set onto a sheet of paper, (the distance of the nozzle tip above the print bed.
I do not own or have a BLTouch so I have not been able to test this BLTouch gauge block in a real world situation.
20% infill is OK with 4 layers top to prevent any infill bumps passing through to the top surface.
A light sanding to smooth the top could help, but keep checking the height of the BLTouch gauge block.
