Pin gauges would work fine. Diameter and depth are the numbers I need. Strange you think this wouldn't work. Do you have a shop and do this kind of work? I do.
I could easily cast the chambers and get all the number I need
Respectfully, the pin gauge will only tell you diameter of the largest inscribed cylinder that will fit into a bore and perhaps to some depth.

It will not tell you if the bore is out of round.

You need another instrument for that.
