Yep,me too. My engine had the tell-tale signs of an over rev on the piston tops. The pistons had been machined to remove the protrusions resulting from the collision done by someone on a previous rebuild.
Even though a valve interface check isn't really necessary with a 964 or SC grind on these flattop pistons, you should always check your deck height on all cylinders prior to mounting the top end. You might have been on the shallow end of the tolerance.
