    I have spoken to the machine shop and parts supplier. This could be the reason for the low HP.
    After doing some research the pistons are more likely 8.5 to 1.
    The headers used for the Dyno run are crap headers.
    The heads I used were the 1951 small exhaust port round.

    If I used 10 to 1 pistons , High quality headers, and 54 later heads, horsepower should be 330.

    What the heck maybe in a year a two I might put a blower on it. Next spring/summer's goal is to get it running and safe for the street.

    It been a while before I could get back to the 31. My old man passed away last month and there has been a lot of illness in the family. I pulled the cover off the 31 and removed the rest of the interior. A couple of dead mice fell out of the headliner and a bunch of seed and nut shells. Here are a couple of photos. I hope once the humidity passes and the tornado clean up is over I'll be able to do some real work on it.

    Go figure a tornado in Massachusetts dang.
