so you have 7.926" of components witha deck height of 7.913 (before decking)...that puts you .013" out of the hole...
.027" gasket will leave you .014" quench height before considering how much you decked the block.
so you'll want a thicker gasket and you need to find out what your actual deck height is.
Ok, I get it.
The block never got pulled out of the car before my friend gave it to me, the decks look free of scratches. So I guess the decks re-surfacing will be minimum.
If it's possible, I want to shave the piston tops instead of using a thicker HG.
