What kind of rings to get?

I don't know my compression, i asked in another thread and i'll ask again here. 64 cc chamber, flat top pistons with little grooves for valves, the piston tdc is about 1/4 inch below deck. 350 block bored .030 over. anything else you need to help me figure comp?

Anyways, i tore the motor down to replace the piston rings, and was wondering what kind would be best to buy. the motor is 350 with double hump heads, mild cam, I want power.

Use plain cast iron rings such as Hastings 139 on a used bore, if there is no taper or wear you can use a moly ring, do not use a chrome ring on a used bore.

Are you saying that your pistons are a 1/4" below the deck of the block? If so you have the wrong rods or pistons or both in this motor!! This must be changed !!

The deck height can be at 0 or.010,20 depends on the heads and head gasket to work out your compression ratio, if you want power the piston needs to be a bit closer to the head . What is the casting # of your crank and block? You need to measure your deck height better to be sure. Someone else may ring in on this.

yeah, i was wrong, i was looking at the marking on the cylinder wall and I figured that was where the piston topped out. But that is just where the piston ring tops out so the deck heigth should be normal.
