Not sure I will ask,and find out.Will the local part store have them,or will I have to go through jegs?Before I put the engine in I am going to do a compression test.I was told it would be fine,but I have never built a motor that had more clearance at the bottom.The bore suppose to be 4.185,and its 4.187 at the bottom 4 1/2 inches on one of the cylinders,but all the other are perfect.
