Thank you! Like I said, the dial indicator is most accurate, since you are getting a true number. Some may find it intimidating, but it is quite easy once you inderstand the method to doing it. I am not saying the the clay method, or the method descibed in Waynes book is wrong, or dont do it, but this way you see a real number, the ohter ways will get you in the ballpark. I just finished up a motor where when I checked it, I had .039 piston to valve on the exhaust, so I had to take it all back apart and drop the reliefs down to get the .100 I wanted for this application. So dont feel bad if you find you have to take it all apart again, sometimes thats the way it goes, but if you do it right at first, then you dont worry about it down the road.
