Cap'n, I am running a 64-110 made out of a 62-102. It is .030 overbore and
runs a Isky 270 cam. I am using 65 Wolf Enterprises carbs with 51 jets, get
26-27 mpg on premium no alcohol fuel. It runs great but needs plugs 2 heat
ranges cooler than standard to keep the plugs in the correct range. I do
have modified heads, but the point is check the plugs after some miles to
make sure they are in the correct temp range.
