When I built my 88 a few years ago, S&S had a 95, 97, and 100 inch option. The shop doing my headwork recommended against 100" pistons, citing cylinder wall thickness. I listened to them and went...

Instead of saying that "I'm not sure how to answer your shim stack question," I should've said "I don't have the data to answer your shim stack question." :)

I had thought about measuring shims,...
