Comparing to the pictures on treats or maybe your photographic memory of what the metrakit skirt looks like, you can see below how much i took off. Is it going to be problematic? maybe probably. It'll just be a slappy boi. dropping the piston into the bore with the spacer and no gaskets, it sits on the case about 10mm below the end of the skirt. the piston is probably 1-2mm south of the bottom of the exhaust port. Once i am pleased with the porting and shit, and finallly put the crank in, i'lkl figure out how much i need to butcher if any.
Here's the head after hillbilly cutting. I positioned it just so you can't see the part that looks the worst very well. tbh, i think it turned out pretty well for how shit my tools are.
Machinist's dye is cool for marking stuff, but my hands have had blue spots on them for days.
