Hi I have just had my block skimmed and I have notice that the pistons are at the same leval or even slitly sticking past the block but dose seem that the head gasket will give sufficent space for the pistons to move with out hitting the head, do you think that it will be ok to leave it like that?

Do you
have the same problem?

What do you mean by skimmed? IF the block was warped, I need to know how much they machined off.
