Re: "short deck" 351w question
For a stock build There are oem replacement pistons that were used in the 1969 351W four barrel. They are flat tops with four eye brow valve reliefs. They will give you 10:1 compression with the early heads. You can get a better than stock cam with a smooth idle that will improve milage and power band.
