283s came with either flattop or poptop pistons when you had the heads off you should have noticed them and know which ones they are flattops will give aprox 9.0 and poptop are 11.0 with the stock heads(58cc) 305 heads vary from 58cc to 62cc depending which heads you have other things are different cams and intake systems there were hydro cams and solid cams there were 2bbls 4bbls dual 4bbls and fuel injection in 57 each in different combos to make all the performance variants so it's hard to say which engine you have and the being rebuilt is another factor but I can say the 283 is the most durable engine ever built and will probably handle anything you can do to it. we have one we are building now
