How far did your piston skirts hang out from the bottom of the cylinders?
My pistons seem to hang out a lot more than I am used to seeing.
Stroke is correct, it just seems like a lot of skirt showing.

mine have about 1/2" hanging down. I think it is even less with my other engine that is in the car now, but those are REALLY short/light pistons. Look like little 4 stroke race bike pistons because they are so short & light.

Gee thanks.
I guess mine are also in the 1/2"-3/4" area so I shouldnt worry.
