Yea thats me,but I believe its to far at the bottom of the block to hurt,and I know it want touch the rings,and I seen blocks that have been clearanced up to as far as the low spot is in the cylinder for stroker engines,but if it is I'm sure I will find out the first pass,or the first time it cranks,and believe me I will post,and let everyone know.
