1/2 the stroke...

I'm with you Outlawstock17... How does the math work there? and how would that fit in a 9in. Chebby block?

.....10 head gaskets stacked together!

that is not how you figure that, you use 1\2 the stroke+ the rod length + the pin\compression height that is the no. that adds up to your deck height.... last i knew anyhow?

ford5 is on the right track......actually, deck height has nothing to do with stroke, pistons or rods. deck height is the measurement from the centerline of the crankshaft to the head gasket mating surface on the block.

ford5 was demonstrating what most engine builders are looking to acheive...."zero deck clearance". when 1/2 the stroke + the rod length + the piston pin height = the deck height then you have "zero deck clearance".

ditto. Chomme, you can add 1/2 of the stroke to your rod length then subtract that from your machined or desired deck height then you arrive at your compression height. (not compression ratio) the location of the wrist pin in the piston. 3.48 x .5 = 1.74 + 6 = 7.74. subtract this from 9 in. decked block and you need a piston with 1.260 compression height for a zero decked piston. This is the most common way.

Motor makes a lot of noise but really not much torque. Good on dry slick.
