I would guess low 8:1 factory it was probably rated at about 8.2:1 or so with dish pistion but the factory rating was usually overly optomistic.Also keep in mind that most pistons in rebuild kits have a slightly lower deck height because many of their sales are to big engine builders who deck all their blocks. If you get the heads milled that will help raise it.
