Hi Funfor,
Well there's quite a few things that determine the deck clearance. Some cheaper rebuilder pistons have reduced compression height, there is manufacturing tolerance in original parts, etc. Since you will be replacing the heads, you will be able to measure the clearance directly when they are off. I would note each cylinder clearance, then you would see if one bank were higher than the other.
