    Pin dia. .9804. I honed my rods to .990 and use BBC pins. 2.090 center of wrist pin hole to piston crown. Quick measurment + or -. I have the number for an Arias piston if you want to step upfor that, or could get you a Cerobend casting of the combustion chamber and cylinder top. Makes it easy for piston mfg. to make a high dome piston. I use 13:1 in mine. If you want some old dead 352 pistons that are pretty scruffy, reimburse me the UPS and I'll send you 4 or 5. Don't have a full set.
