Its hard to tell in the picture,  dont blast the ring grooves, or the wrist pin hole.   You need to get a bore dial gauge and a set of micrometers and check your out of round and piston to wall clearance. You might be better off taking it somewhere.

I plan on taking it somewhere to get the block cleaned and checked, but if I dont have to buy pistons that saves me alot.

It might save you money now but will it in the long run?  Take your pistons to the machine shop.  If your spending money there already their advice should be free.  HAve them take a look and see what they think.

Good score on the transmission!  What kingpin set are you using?  You're gonna have this truck on the road pretty fast.
