I did not know the parts book give the thickness. I had not looked these up. As far as compression, I thought I read it was only the automatic 63 Cutlass that had the higher compression? That also confuses me because I can’t find anything in the parts book that is different for them to gain that compression? Did they have special heads with less cc’s? I have not looked up the heads yet.
