measure the compression hieght. the distance between the top of piston and the wrist pin hole. then add 1/2 of the wrist pin hole(sbc .927) then look up in a piston book or subtract that dim from 9.000 (avg. deck hiegth) subtract rod length and that is 1/2 stroke.
9.000 deck 1.125 compression hieght 6.00 rod ------- 1.875 this is half stoke so 1.125 comp. piston is for a 6.0 rod 3.75 stoke
