Re: Shucks First Build

I assume they are supplying the pistons? Balance job and decking included so, not a bad price at all.

Now is the time to figure what heads(combustion chamber size)you will be using so to get the correct style piston.

If you plan on going with a large chamber head(72-76cc) go with flat tops.

Have your machinist take .020 off the block deck while squaring it up at the same time. You want to keep your piston to head clearance less than .050, preferably .040.

Ask him if he uses a torque plate during the boring/honing process.
