I think i found 9.025 does that sound right? What if it was at 9.012 would that require some fixing of the intake?

I guess it depends on what compression you are aiming for... less is more compression.. mine are flush w/ the deck and need more compression... 14 to 1 isnt enough...lol

9.025 is stock deck height for a small block chev. .012 is the measurement to the piston inside the cylinder wall at TDC?

If it is and your going to do a rebuild, i would aim for about .003 to .005 (in the hole) with a flat top piston.
