calipers only wor on this if they are on a dead level surface and the piston is all the way down and clean the piston carbon built up will throw everything off

ok a little more info is I bought a used wreaked SVT but it was drivable.
I drove it around for alittle bit to make sure it shifted and drove ok.
I was going to put the short block in my car when I noticed #1 piston was lower than the rest,When ever this happen the person it happened to must have kept drive it while it was knocking I can see where the rod use to rub the cyn wall.

Damn, you were going to upgrade anyways though...right? If not, that still sucks.

Hope your project comes through!

ouch, how bad did it mark up the inside of the bore? One would think that you would be able to notice something like that while driving right?

I'd like to see inside that cylinder myself.

I guess it just goes to show that some people don't give two cents about their vehicles.
