Default Re: Flathead deck height

The valve angle change doesn't have anything to do with the deck height - as deck height is strictly based off of crankshaft centerline.

Since all of these engines came with the same length rod and the compression height was the same for all 3 3/4 stroke engines, the deck height "should be" the same for all years.

With that said, I typically see a variance between one bank and the other - so I usually figure out which side is lowest, then use it to determine how much more to take off the high side -- to get them both even.
