If the bores ok you might be able to hone it and get the right clearences.  Theres some .020 pistons out there

Actually with a .020 overbore, that gives you some room to bore to a set of .030 pistons. With the '049' or any open chamber heads for that matter you'll have to run a dome piston to get decent compression out of it. Not sure on the other piston manufacturers, but I know the smallest oversize dome piston that TRW makes is .030 over.

But the nice thing about the open chamber heads is you get less valve shrouding when you go to bigger valves.

I sent you my number...gimme a call.
To err is human, to forgive divine...except for running Fords ;D

That suks 2Sav. I'm sure you didn't get a warranty with that used engine, but phock it, did you at least call the guy you bought it from? I sold my 454 block this morning for $60, otherwise... good luck.

Steve, let me know if I can help with anything.  I'm sorry that thing didn't turn out to be a 468, and if you wanted to go a diff direction I would understand and give you your money back.  I guess I will be checking numbers from now on!!!!!!!!!   I just saw a BBC 4 bolt and had no reason to think otherwise.  Let me know on the rods and they're yours if you want em.   Jason
 
 
Well he did offer a refund :o  But i would be happy with $200 for a replacement block and the 454 rods.

We will see ;)

kb makes .020s in hypers, and i have no problem running hypers.  But I'm not getting into that debate.

Speed-pro has some too, and TRW has a flat top forged
