OK,
What is the absolute bare minimum piston to head clearance ? At present, the piston is .004 to .005 in the hole, valve clearance is good on a .039 1003, meaning I have enough. I just cant find what is bare minimum and what is recommended. I know that with the 1003 on I had no problems and that is at .045 +/- 1 or 2 thousanths. I would like to get to 14 to 1 and can do that by going w/ a .030 gasket, that is if I can find one that is .030, but that would put me at .034 in clearance.. is this too tight or as tight as you would go or plenty..? Noneof the books I have give an EXACT number...
Thanx,
