It's got some minor surface rust on the bores, but still turns over. I figured it would be fine to throw in the red car and run it at the track. I intend to take it apart and eyeball it, clean it up, run a dingleball hone through the cylinders and do some stuff with the block. Only concern of course is the flat tops probably won't play nice with the B cam.  Any recommendations on cutters, I've already got a cut up cylinder head I could use for that exercise...LOL!!

That's what I was trying to find, the search function on this board can be aggravating vs. the other style.

Any idea what cc the pistons are vs. the regular HO pistons?

Its been a long time (15+ years) since I've seen a 86 HO piston, but I remember them being a true flat top. I think that they had a small dimple for installation direction.

Or are we talking about a non-HO dished piston or a 4VR truck piston?

Ed said the pistons were 0 volume, no dome and no dish, which makes perfect sense, don't know why I didn't realize that earlier.

That would be great. Let me get it mocked up first to see for sure that I need to cut them, if I do I'll let you know.

Wonder what a safe depth to go with the cuts on this? Got a .130 pocket, and the clay is getting pushed out, so safe to assume it still needs to go more. Heads are milled .020, have a .030 thick gasket, and the pistons are nearly flush with deck. I should have measured the piston thickness before I put the bottom end together....

That's a thin head gasket.  You have a little wiggle room there.

I think it'll be OK, shoulda stuck with the stock HO cam and the 1.7's, but it'll be badass with the Bcam..

I ran across the Car Craft issue where they did a build from a '86 short block. It stated that they cut the intake reliefs about 0.150" and the exhaust about 0.200", and that it provided safe clearance for a NX-282 cam with AFR 165s. No information on deck height, etc..

Being a comic book, take it for what it is.
