Re: PE-90 o520 conversion

Angle valve 0520 cylinders, fuel injected pistons, h290 grind on cam, case decked .125. Starts fine, runs awesome. Only avgas. Don Davis told me I was around 9.5-1.had to shave the skirts on the pistons, and cut clearance in cylinder skirts .also had to shorten the pushrods.
