I have done some clean up of the seat tube with a brake hone and the 27.0 post, while still tight, does seem to work, that said I am going to take up @Dfrost on his generous offer of a trial 26.8 post just to compare the fit. Its a bit academic as the bike is waiting on a 7 speed cassette spacer which is literally on the slow boat from china then I can mount the 7 speed cassette I just purchased to the 700c 9 spd mavic/ultegra wheels I found for this bike and give it a test run before it gets an overhaul.

Thanks everyone for the info and suggestions!
