It's a short block. Measured the deck height and ordered new Panchito heads from CB.

The CB H-Beam are awesome. I really like them.. very high quality.

All new hardware and its a pleasure to have new chromoly head studs.... fresh clean threads.

Perhaps you should be looking into building a type four engine since so many people seem to be having issues.
Still Monkeying Around. Not afraid to tell you how I really feel.

Forgot to show the 1.5qt deep sump.

I ordered the heads yesterday. CB Panchito 044 40x35 with dual springs. CR will be 8.5:1.

Now I have to wait for the heads to arrive.
