I think I checked all topics I could find but didn't find out is there a possibility to measure block deck height if I only have a block.
I understood that to be sure what components I need, I need to measure deck height with present pistons and chamber volume and decide what will be desired CR and then decide about new pistons (type, dish, crown dimensions).
But, what if I do not have any pistons right now?
I have A 1275 block and no clue what was happening last 30 years with it.
I bought Innocenti piston rods and I guess they are of the some standard length. Also standard A 1275 crankshaft that was in that block. I do not have any pistons and no bearings at the moment for any dummy build....
So is there any way to measure deck height from some block reference and to understand how much deck meat I may have and how much deck height I can expect with specific piston type on innocenti rods (Hepolit 21253 as an example)?
---like deck to block bottom height or any other reference?
