New Old Hot Rodder

Hi: Have been working on a 48 Ford pickup for a few years now. Retired 5 years ago & have been slow to get started. Last fall I took a 51 Ford block to the machine shop to have done up. I sent them a set of EP 1091 3 5/16 EGGE Pistons & a 4" Merc crank to put in. Just got it back a few weeks ago & a set of Edelbrock 1115 Heads just arrived. I have the oil pump to put on & the pan & the bottom end is done. Looks like its going to be a money pit but it should be worth it. Checked the head to piston clearance this AM & ooops! Noticed the head jumped up 15 thou on one side & 12-13 on the other. Valves can't be hitting, cam is 220 - 323 Lft. I noticed the EGGE Piston comes up in the bore a little higher than the stock one. Looks like this is going to be a fun project.
