Re: Block Decking
My understanding of decking is, by decking this allows you to have a greater control over the quench. By having a deck height of 9.025"(factory) you must you a .015" shim gasket to get a decent compression ratio. By decking to 9.000" or 9.010", you can run a .039" gasket and get a higher compression. If you run a flat top, 65cc head, 9.025" deck height and a .039" gasket, you will end up with a 9.56 static and a 8.28 dynamic. With a 0 deck you get 10.12 static and 8.76 dynamic, but this is just my understanding.
