‘47 Chief

#1

Post by ccislander »

I just reinstalled my top end on the ‘47 Chief after a +.010 bore, new stock Indian style pistons & rings, new valves & guides. After running the motor through several heat cycles and retightening everything, I checked my compression and have about 46-47 lbs. Am I in the ballpark for what a stock Chief motor ought to have?
