MB doesn't list block height from crank centerline, but from sealing surface to sealing surface. Height when new is 292.5 +- 0.05mm & min height is 292.2mm

Follow piston mfgr for piston clearance! Also think about having the piston tops ceramic coated & the skirts moly coated!!

I tried Ross pistons & they needed .006" skirt clearance!
