Where should the deck height mesurement be taken; when using a dial indicator and taking the measurement off the piston. Should it be done from the center of the piston??? I took some measurements and one side of the piston always seems to be 2-3 thousands closer than the other.

check the height at both ends of the block. it is not uncommon for the deck not to be parallel to the crankshaft over the length of the block.
