Finally getting back to the 545 in the drag car. Installed the crank and pistons in 4 corners and measured how far in the hole they are. All measurements are at .023" but one (is .020" but was probably user error).
Pistons are Probe forged dish (for SCJ), crank is 4.5" Lunati forged, and rods are 6.8" Lunati 4340. Heads are FMS SCJ (no porting or valve work yet). No cam yet, but as I recall SCJ's can't take more than .700" lift.
Have Felpro .041" head gaskets, so thinking I need .020" off the top. Am I on the right track?
