If they are 3.5 thou you have a heck of a careful break in to do, lots of short runs.
Definitely get them measured, then you know.
The boring fellow should be happy to adjust with a little honing if needed, considering he didn't follow your instructions.
Alternatively, he should accept responsibility for a seizure during normal break in.

Yes, not that it detracts from the conversation. I'm more concerned about 0.0035 piston clearance and whether to build as is or send back to the machinist than a missing 0 in a forum.

As per the others, .0035" seems too tight. I'd send it back for another run-through with the hone to take another half a thou out.

3.5 is too tight for certain

What concerns me is the machinist not listening to what the customer wants.

I know one shop that had a few tighten up at .004 when they started using emgos so had to go to .0045.
.035 would be fine in a 250, maybe.
