Question about measuring deck clearance

I have domed pistons. Should I be meauring from the flat edge of the piston, or from the top of the dome?

Thanks,
Ian.

Deck clearance is still measured from the flat part, regardless of piston type whether domed, flat or dished.

And, since clearance may very with piston rock, it's a good idea to measure just above the centerline of the wrist pin (gudgeon pin?)
