Re: Piston to head clearancing

So if i am understanding you correctly, you are milling the head at a angle taking more off the cylinder side? If so what angle are you doing it at and did you ever do it to cast iron heads?

Re: Relieved stroker motor with Ford aluminum heads

I have heard of it, but I never knew exactly where the "11A cam and advance mechanism" came from? I am assuming that it came out of a later style distributer?

Re: Relieved stroker motor with Ford aluminum heads
