Here's what I have. CV492S
MWSC: new style aluminum flywheel, springs, retainers, racing hyd lifters, copper gasket.
Going to run stock internals, fresh rings, valve job, clean up the head a bit, for a season and go from there.
I am wondering if I am better of running a small block head to increase compression or just shaving the existing head? If shaved, how much? If I do go with a long rod and piston combo next year, I don't want to find myself in a situation where the head has been shaved too much to handle the new displacement.
Also, I've been told not to exceed 6000 rpm on stock internals, what compression number should I be aiming for?
Finally, am I going to get away with running the stock carb, reworking fuelling, or am I better of switching to something else? Gotta stay on a budget though.
Thanks for your help. Just trying something different than B&S for the heck of it!
