I suppose that it depends on how you look at things. I consider the 1964 and 
1965-67, non smog 110 hp engines the same. Both have the same combustion 
chamber, displacement, camshaft, etc. etc.  Then there is the smog 110. That makes 

My '69  110  is open chambered.....raised dome piston........runs  great on 
87  with 3.27's...

Interesting. How come your open chambered engine works so good when everybody 
knows that squish chambered heads are more detonation resistant and tolerant 
of low octane gas?
