I really appreciate the help, i did start 2 different threats but after awhile they went cold since i had new issues, but i do believe that i did mention the cylinder change in one of those threads, thread one was my initial low 140 compression, my second one was why my engine seized, and then this one.
I sincerely hope that i can still get the help to correct this,
head work, gaskets base or head, i dont know.
Initial post 140 psi
Second post blew engine
Third post too high compression
Hope this clears up I'm not a dumb ass. hahaha

You can try raising the whole cylinder to give you enough piston clearance but then your port timings may be to high.
you need to put a degree wheel on it to truely know, and thats a whole another thread on how to use a degree wheel.
why not fix the old cylinder?

Id go with rs on this one bro. U stated u got cylinder #2 for no down time but it seems to me as #2 is making you have down time so just fix the original cylinder and go riding
Your looking at it the wrong way. True you've spent the money on the cylinder then had it honed new piston ect ect. But now your talking bout spending more money to have the work done to get this cylinder and head set up properly to run it. When u could spend the money on the old cylinder and go riding and sell the freshly honed cylinder with new piston and rings. You would make the money spent to get cylinder 1 fixed by selling headache cylinder2
with so many unknowns with this cylinder you either sell it to someone that is smart enough to set it up properly or you have to map it out for yourself.
to that you need to put a degree wheel on it which you would need to buy but then you will more than likely still need to have the dome recut to work with the new cylinder because if your new cylinder has porting done to it then the exhaust port more than likely has been raised and raising the cylinder more will make the motor real peaky or not run correctly at all if its to much.
then there is a good chance that the extra base gaskets will blow out or leak.
