Good point, my book says late 66 427's had the reinforced cylinders. I was working with an engine builder that found it cheaper easier and more effective to sleeve a whole block and turn down expensive Hepolite pistons to match the bores rather than replace pistons(in a car we only use the rear end out of!?). No worries by the right machinists.
