If my memory is correct my 71 Colony park 429 used D0VE heads and was 11.5:1, dad's 70 Mark III was also 11.5:1 on the 460.

I think that there were two deck height changes, prior to the D9 block. The first change was in 1970 1/2. I have a 78 dive block, and with the c9ve heads that I'm cleaning up as a winter project. I'm not sure what the ratio will be in the end, but...I'm aiming for pump fuel though
