    Tis' a curiosity, no?
    No curiosity here..... I just want a shed load more power, 8.25 to 1 compression just doesn't cut it. If I just wanted to drive 'round on the street I'd repair the oil pressure relief valve, stuff a distributor in it and drive. I want to be able to run it down the strip from time to time and spank some Pord, Nopar and Chebby ass!!

      Thanks for the constructive input Ted. ......so I could machine off the .135 from some 259 pistons and with 259 rods, standard deck height and 289 crank achieve around 10 to 1 compression?

        You could but I don't think there is enough meat on the top of the 259 pistons to mill that much off and not blow holes in the tops. Also the 259 and 289 rods are the same.
