putting together a windsor...

.030" over, standard crank, 13cc dish pistons...

Canfield stage II 65cc heads... flowed 279/203 @ .600"

I'm planning on milling the heads to get the compression ratio into the 9.75-10.25:1 range (depending on cam/headers/etc.)

the cam that's in the shortblock is a solid flat tappet... and the heads on the block were 64cc... I'm supprised it ran as well as it did... specs are:

255/265 @ .050", .576/.570", 106LSA...

the thing's BEGGING for some compression with that cam, and i'm not looking to run THAT much compression...

I'm thinking something in the high 230's low 240's @ .050" on like a 110* LSA...

but I don't know... just looking for something to drive around that'll have me shifting ~6400-6500

the solid lifters are new, so I don't mind a solid flat cam, but a hydraulic flat is fine...

turns out a buddy of mine has a solid flat he'll give me...

248/254 @ .050" .563/.568" on a 106

I still think I'd like to go a little smaller... I'd rather have a solid for ease of setting everything up, but am kinda chicken **** about having one in my daily driver :idunno:

car will have a 3.73 gear, Tremec 3550, ~2700-2800lb car with 275/40/17's out back.

planning on a victor jr. intake, but am considering a dual plane...

again, would be plenty happy keeping the revs below 6500.

thanks,

Forrest

oh, and I know I'll catch some flack for this one, but there's a good chance headers will be 1 5/8" shorties! :angel:

this is going to be my daily driver, and I want it to be easily servicable...

I MIGHT go with some 1 3/4" long tubes if I can find some used BBK's in the next couple weeks... but at this point I'm really leaning towards some shorties...

Forrest, I ran a solid flat tappet (old GT40 grind) in my 67 Cougar for several years. I seldom had to adjust the valves once everything broke in and it really wasn't all that noisey. It was sort of a low lift though, I believe it was around .528" or so. that thing woudl rev to the moon too with no float. It had seen 7500 RPM many times, but ran best shifted around 6600.

Based on airflow, you need about 224/228ish with about 530 lift. Lobe sep of 108 with the intake on a 104 if this thing is carbed.
