What kind of solder to use checking squish measurement?
I was wondering what kind of solder to use checking squish measurement. The manual says not to use acid core type. I am more concerned of what size? I would assume it would have to be fairly thick in gauge but not too thick. What is the best thickness?
Thanks in advance

2.5 mm is about what you need.Make sure you get it right out at the edge of the bore

1/8 inch thick or something close to that. 50/50 tin/lead. You might need to find a welding supply shop to get solder with lead in it.

You need to measure the outside edge directly over the Gudgeon pin front and back for both bores. Get all your measurements and average them out for each bore.

1.34 pto 1.39 mag squish in mm average

Too small you need 1.8 mm minimum for it to not suffer from detonation or squeak a piston/ring.
You need to do a relieve cut on the domes or run a thicker base gasket.
I have never done it with an R@D Head but you might be able to run the stock head gasket with this head so you get min 1.8mm
This way you dont have to pull the cylinder off to change gasket or machine the domes.
