Thank you again for the the info. To help clarify a few items... I reused the original WD rods, and the they are 175 dished/cupped alum. pistons. Bore is standard 4". I updated to the 4" head and the valves were ground and seated at the machine shop. RN you mentioned a fuel shutoff drill?? I assume you mean shutting the fuel off/running out of fuel? IF the compression is higher like 9.5 or 10:1 what octane rating would you recommend? Also I drilled a 1/8" hole in the thermostat flange to allow water to pass through during warm up. Thanks again.

10:1 compression engines used by pullers get premium with some aircraft fuel used a lot- 100 octane low lead from the airports or racing fuel from track suppliers. "Drill" = procedure meaning in this case put engine to idle, shut off fuel valve at fuel tank and let engine run out of gas- this used to be more common with old JDs and F20s.
