Questions and Answers
Will this work with original cast iron pistons, or will that put too much stress on the crank?
 This will work with orignal cast pistons. The head will add some stress to the crank, Anything you do to add horsepower to a motor will. There are alot of people runing them on stock cranks with out a problem. I can not tell you if you will get unlucky or not though. If your crank does go with a high compression head on it, It wont be caused by the head. It will only happen sooner with the head. Most cracks in the crank do not happen overnight but slowly build over time.
