f-bird'88 lift rule 350-vortec
After reading these posts for I dunno how long, I am going to do one of T-bird's suggested builds centered around the Isky lift rule camshaft and Vortec heads.
I was gifted with a low-mile crate 350 that I tore into today. No piston ridge but I found that it has those awful dished pistons. For some reason I was believing it had flat top pistons.
My goal today was to measure the deck height in order to insure I had the proper quench with my .015 steel shim head gaskets.
I want flat top pistons. I need flat top pistons! What is the next step?
It seems I should continue to tear it down to the block & drop it off to be hot tanked.
Should I have them make a pass over the deck to insure it is flat?
Should I have them take a bunch off to aid in my quench pursuit?
Should I go ahead a order the pistons so the holes can be fit to them?
The bores look absolutely great, no harm to be seen, so I am not thinking of an overbore.
