Here is an update. I went to the shop and we CCed the top of the pistons and deck height. The owner was not there, but the builder was. He said I was correct and that the owner failed to deliver what was promised. We calculated compression numbers that matched my own as well as yours. They took it back and redid the job correctly. I have the short block in my garage and am getting ready to finish putting it together.
Though I do not think highly of the owner, the guy that did the work was honest and seemed to really care. I am crossing my fingers this thing holds up, it helps that I trust the man that actually did the work. I will not be going back there, ever.
If any of you out there are seeking machine work around the 60081 zip code, request my email address. I can give you the specifics of my dealings and hopefully steer you in your decision on where to go.
Thank you all for the advice and sanity check.
