So I take my cylinder off,
put my piston in my cylinder at where TDC is (or at firing time 2mm BTDC i dunno you tell me)
And I look around for stuff:
If the top of my piston skirt is covering up any of my intake port should I shave it down so that's open?
If my piston is covering up any of my transfer ports do I shave that as well?
It is my understanding that the answer is yes. However:
Is this always the case for max power? Does it matter whether is reed valve vs piston port? I've done this with good results for stock puch cylinders.
Right now I'm working on an a35 cylinder. The transfers are slightly covered up. And the intake is covered up big time.
