I assume it's crank end float. 3.2 thou is fractionally tighter than the 4 thou bottom limit, well under the 8 thou top limit. It should be OK.

Cleveland and SB windsor timing gears are different due to different deck heights - 8.2" v's 9.2"

btw deck height has nothing to do with the differences between them.
