Has anyone tried counter boring the head to let the pistons come up out of block about 0.150" on a Oliver 88-1650 9 port head? I have a crank and rods and want to stay away from custom pistons, and will use automotive pistons... Bore would be 4.310"-4.375" area....Thanks

You can use a thicker head gasket..... or mill some off the pistons... or both.... Ona a stock 88 head, you can mill about .100 off of it safely, so that will give you atleast .100 fot fly cut the the head.

Then I'd say fly cutting the deck .150 more would be a bad idea...

Use a set of 1800 diesel pistons and cut the tops off good compression.
