Wow its been a while since I posted here.  I got no more excuses, I gotta finish this thing.  I got way too many parts in boxes laying around and now I have a cherry picker and engine stand.  

I just got a full gasket set "minus head gaskets" in the mail.

So I need suggestions on fuel injectors and Head Gaskets. I'm pretty sure thats all I need. "Maybe Fuel Rails also".  I'm likely gonna buy the Felpro 1008 head gaskets "mentioned before in this topic" unless anyone else has a better option.

Thanks for the input Cool

WELL  Smile

- Stock shim gasket in the low-mid .020" range - NOT stock magnum but stock LA shim gasket.
- 1121G Mr Gasket: .028"
- Felpro 1008: .039"

I like the Mr. Gasket if not milling the heads or block excessively and not using zero deck pistons.

I have new Eddy heads and the deck shouldn't need milling.  I have a Zero deck pistons http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/products.php?browse=category&level0=Qi0gU21hbGwgQmxvY2sgRG9kZ2UgTWFnbnVt&level1=UGlzdG9ucyAoMzYwIFN0cm9rZXIp&searchmode=partnumber&page=6&partid=26375

Are you pistons a true zero deck when installed?  Are they installed yet?
I would probably go with either the fel pro 1008 or factory gasket which is about 0.40"  - might need thicker yet depending on deck height, piston to wall clearance and CR.
What would you CR be with that setup?

BUT it depends on your piston to cyl. wall clearance - if it is tight like the factory pistons (OEM specs (0.001-0.002") you can run as tight as 0.30 piston to head clearance but that is about the tightest, 0.40" would be safer.   MORE piston to cyl wall clearance will require slightly more piston to head clearance as the piston rocks at TDC and can hit the head.

Make sense?

I did find this, but it was about a small block chevy but most all wedge head engines are the same.

So now let’s introduce a tighter quench space into this equation. All of the respected engine builders who we’ve talked to are firm believers in minimizing the quench clearance. According to Ken Duttweiler, the tightest quench he recommends is around 0.050-inch. He has built engines with far tighter clearances than this, but much of this depends on the piston-to-wall clearance. All pistons tend to rock slightly as they transition through TDC and this rocking motion reduces the piston-to-head clearance. Smaller-diameter pistons with tight piston-to-wall clearances don’t rock nearly as much in the cylinder bore compared to larger-bore pistons with wider piston-to-wall clearances.

Since piston clearance plays such a big part in piston-to-head clearance, it is possible to run a piston-to-head clearance tighter than 0.040-inch if you feel brave. Noted horsepower hero John Lingenfelter says that clearances of 0.037 to 0.040 inch are possible, but you must know what you’re doing. The late Smokey Yunick also recommended a quench clearance of 0.040 inch as a safe but critical clearance.

also found this for the 5.9,  and did you see this thread?
https://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/threads/quench-vs-piston-to-head-clearance.254733/

It will vary with the application, bore size, stroke, piston rock, rod material, and RPM. Average Street/race engine with steel rods 4" bore .035-.050" is safe and effective.
Aluminum rods .060"+.

Are your pistons installed yet?

 What shape is the dome?  I saw a few pictures of a piston for some engine that had a nice recessed area similar in shape to the combustion chamber and it was supposed to really help on swirl.  So it had a good squish band where the piston meets the machined head are  and kidney shaped dish in the combustion chamber area  - which served as valve reliefs and swirl promoter I guess.

My Pistons are not installed yet. They are true zero deck and will be used with a forged SCAT I-beam rods. Below is a picture of my Pistons.

Thanks for the help

I would probably buy the head gaskets after the pistons are installed.  You may find some that are above or below deck, hopefully not but it wouldn't be uncommon.

You might have to adjust the head gasket thickness for clearance or compression ratio, if all is good and you can get a decent squish it can really help.  Anything over 0.055 squish is ineffective, so don't worry about the squish if you need to go that much to drop compression or need valve clearance.

Should be a nice running setup  Smile

Thanks for the advice!

According to my math with the Felpro 1008 head gasket I should be at 9.7 to 9.8:1 compression ratio.  Your right though, I will straight edge it and make sure its zero deck before I buy the gaskets.

Got more parts on the way from Richard at HiPoTek (98Dak408),  Holley Injectors, HiPoTek Fuel Rails and Braided hose plug and play kit.  The only thing left to buy is head gaskets.  I hope to pull this engine and trans in the next few weeks!
