You can run 15:1 w/those heads. Would I advise it? Might depend on the application, and about a hundred other things.

Did you mix up the rod caps and or change the hole they came out of? They are wearing more on one side . If not that then the rods need to be straightend to make them square to the crankshaft. I would check the wrist pin bushings next but this engine will need a total rebuild that's for sure.

Nope didnt mix up the caps, they were all stamped. I figured that they could stand high compression. But for 15:1 haha lots of time and money
