Biggarmike L2165 are flat top? I built a 327 last year with L2166, they were .100" dome. Too much for pump gas with 64cc heads. Yours should be close, but ok.

72trucker I have a 327 bored .060 over with flat-top trw cast pistons and 64cc heads. Lots of static compresion. Ratio is about 9.6-10:1 and I did the math (the 9.6-10 range is for any minor miscalculation). SO, the compression is up there for pump fuel, which is what I use. I had a hard time with detonation/pre-ignition. I had to richen the a/f ratio and go with colder spark plugs. Good Luck....

TRW 327 Pistons

I've got a set of forged TRW pistons for a 327 SBC. The TRW # is L2165. When I bought them I was told they were 9:1 with 64cc heads. I was going through a reference book (always accurate right!) and they were listed as 10:1. Anybody know a site with with specs...or even have personal knowledge about these?
