Measured with a feeler gauge about 1/4” above the bottom of the skirt. Eagle Mike said to expect about that. I Sent the cylinder and head to EM for the machine work. This is a JE forged piston, and I expect EM knows what clearances to make for this piston. The rings gaps were at or near the tight end of the spec.
