Hi Ben, I went to the Engineering place that was going to do the work and let them measure it as long as they are going to get the work they wont mind especially as most shops like to bore and hone with the replacement pistons to make sure they are a perfect fit. You need to know if it needs a bore before you can order them. HTH

Use a piston ring and a set of feeler gauges in the gap. Measure the overall diameter of the piston ring with a vernier calliper first, insert the ring in the bore and insert feeler gauges in the ring gap until you feel drag. Add the totals up and you have your answer.

Do that at several intervals down the bore to ensure its true. Use the depth gauge on the calliper to ensure the ring is square in the bore by measuring the depth at 12,3,6 and 9 o'clock positions before using the feeler gauges.

Time consuming but works well. Also requires no special tools !
