Good news: I got the cylinder head put back together with new valve stem seals, piston installed with new rings, and all my new gaskets cut and ready.

Bad news: It seems the bore on the aftermarket cylinder I was sold is undersized, by about .024" which is a hell of a lot...Seems odd that everything else about the part is bang on, but they failed to nail the most important spec of all. :(

Going back to the engine builder tomorrow to see if he can either bore the new cylinder to fit properly, or hone the old one so I can re-use it...
