im looking at a 10.200 dart big m block thats for sale and the owner states that theres an issue with the bottom of the cylinders on the cam side being ground on for alum rods.he states that how he has ground them that theres roughly 1.100 of the piston skirt sticking below where he has ground.the overall of the piston is 2.00!now i dont know if hes ground the whole side of the cylinder away or part of it.i will be running the same stroke crank and same rod length.so do you think that the piston will rock to much with that much hanging down or????he has stated that his own machinist said "run it it will be fine"but he says he is too much a perfectionist to trust it.any thoughts? thanks eddie

With what stroke does it do it? And that just sounds like alot of material being removed, I wouldn't do it. Sounds like the pin is being pulled out of the bore which is a no no, even if it is just one side. I would pass.
