I'm going to use Speed Pro + .030 hyper cast pistons in my 351C street machine. Any special advise on piston to wall clearance?
Also, my original main bearings were full grooved. Any thoughts on using full grooved versus half grooved bearings?

Thanks, Tim

I like FG bearings with a HV Melling pump along with restrictors.

I always run cast pistons on the tighter side.
