    I wonder if your getting valve float? Would shimming the valve springs help? Or, increase the rockers to longer ratio to get a little more valve timing. Since stock SB is 1.5, going to 1.6 gets you some free power......a set of rollers will also ease a little HP, since you don't have the friction.

    Just thinking outloud, like were in a garage Bull S ing

    I made a mistake posting the piston comp height. Looked at my calcs and I used the correct numbers in my calcs but posted the incorrect back to you.

    Thought something was wrong when I reread what I posted. Must of had 350 height on the brain when posting.
    Anyhow if you want the number for piston compression height of the stock production piston it is 1.675. Rebuilder pistons are 1.655
