Dammit Hank, I was thinking decking the block was out of scope, but now you have me thinking. The short block is still together, but I could have it completely disassembled by the end of tonight if I wanted..........

If I can get the chambers down to 70cc's, which a .050" cut should get me close or there, and zero deck, then I'd be a hair over 9.0 compression.....
