Response to If you are starting a new build....
Thanks for the feedback. I had a conversation with Kurt Neighbor, he was telling me not to go over 9.5:1 compression. I haven't done any research on what cam to use as of yet. My block will need the oil feeds drilled for the T&D rocker through the pushrods, and I called him to confirm he could do that machine work. He talked about a few items, including filling the bottom of the block with cement, which I found to be surprising. Even for a street car.
I will be asking about how to set this all up correctly when I get ready. My wallet is a bit light after obtaining the top end components, but would like a plan for cam & bottom end selection. I know it will be hydraulic roller cam, and was thinking of Scat stroker kit. Block is already 4.25 bore.
I'm sure I wont need the 850lb springs on the heads. I don't know how much use they've had, I've been told not all that much but that isn't very definitive. Would be willing to trade for correct springs for whatever setup is decided.
