OOPS. WRONG PISTONS.

NO!!!!!!!

Ugh. I should have read the details on this engine build-up a little better. Long story short, the z22e engine came in two different types - one that has a 32.1mm piston height, and one that has a 35.5mm piston height. My project needed the 32.1mm, and I just finished installing the 35.5mm, and saw that the piston is protruding about 3.4mm above deck. That's a little excessive. I'm glad I only installed one piston before I noticed - I only have to pull one piston back out of the engine.

Measure twice, execute once. That's the lesson learned. Ugh. Now I've got to find a set of oversize 32.1mm z22e pistons. I'm so frustrated.
