B6hs. Did I mistype ? Pat the electrode to Piston crown is brilliant and could explain all this misery!! But it seems so far away from the sealing surface. But the kit was milled to give a tight squish on the milled oem head. The stock shocko piston isn't excessively dome shaped.
Jbot : I can assure u I've tried all kinds of settings and slides.
I think if the old head continues to work I will change out the studs and give the dog cycles motzig jailing head a go. I want this to reliably run cool. Putting that jailing head on is a major bear. One suggestion is to pull the motor mount get the head on without messing with the petcock. Ugg. With no idea if im missing something on this build and now an an additional adventure.
