Sir, can you explain also what you mean by the squish being too wide? Is there some rules about the squish in conjunction w/static compression?

I understand that the compression may be too high for that cam, but I couldn't afford the .051" thick gaskets at the time to bring me down where I felt more comfortable either. I know it sounds absurd to do all of the work I did for the sake of $60 or so and then not have the optimum motor that we all hope to build and enjoy.
