If this isn't a professional race engine, just run it. The cost and frustration of fixing is just too much to mess with, all you really have is a compression difference one side to the other cause by the about .010 inch difference. If the crank is off center there's a small angulaty difference going on with the rods. None of this is show stopper. If it really drives you crazy use two different thickness head gaskets to even it up the compression some.
