Gonna have to change your tag line if she's no longer leaky!
She may still be a little leaky / weepy....but she better be quiet! :geek:

a) get written combustion chamber volumes from Len.
b) write down each of your deck height numbers (coated combustion chamber ceilings means that you can't do little adjustments with a razor blade, you will have to adjust solely with base shims).

a) is covered asked Len, and it will be stamped on the heads. (BTW, should arrive tomorrow :bounce: ). Can you expound a little on b), or point me to a thread that has discussed this?

Find an online compression ratio calculator CIP1 has one.

Punch in displacement, stroke, your combustion chamber volumes, add piston dish, and deck height will be the remaining variable that you solve for your desired compression ratio. It's a fun calculator, play with the numbers.
