I see the broken piston top in your last picture. I just took apart a 390 block with 401 crank and there was a piston just like it. The dish depth & valve relief makes the distance to the bottom of the ring groove  inadequate. Check out your next pistons carefully. Pat

The 904 in the gremlin right now only have 1 gear, so i pulled it and started to swap in a 727, That way i can get the car to inspection and get an idea of how much i need to do before i can drive it legal LOL

Still collecting parts for the 401 build.
