Another question

I turned my engine over by hand and I took a rough measurement from the top Of the piston to the top of the bore.
The length is about 70mm
Does/would that equate to 347?
I know there are more variables than that but I thought I may as well ask

Re: Another question

Mate, the distance from TDC to BDC through one revoloution should equate to 3.4"
This is the length of stroke.

Re: Another question

Might want to recheck, 70mm is only a stroke of 2.755 inches. 347's have a stroke of 3.4 inches or 86.36mm. Even a 302 has a 3 inch or 76.21mm stroke so i think you've measured incorrectly or you've got the fastest 260ci windsor going around
