Re: DCR vs. Quench
Well, thats close to what I had, 282HR with thin gaskets and pistons like yours on my old 355 with old darts. My guess was the cam was bleeding off some cly pressure but quench was tight, i ran pump prem, I ran altitude from 2ft above to 8500 ft sea level ,37° timing . no issues. I see your pain. I would go with thin gaskets, if you have issues, you can back off a little on timing, if it gets real bad, well, pull of cheap thin gaskets and replace with .039 gaskets at $25 a head. Final answer. Lets see if someone else disagrees. Paul? Tim? Home from work yet?
Somewhere I have a little program that figures your fuel with cam and eng specs, tells you what you can get away with. I will look for it and post it later this evening.
