In addition to the cast-iron Scat crank, the reciprocating assembly consists of forged Icon pistons and Scat’s 6.123-inch forged connecting rods (standard length for a Dodge 360). Hafliger opted for flat-top pistons to get a compression ratio of about 10.9:1. The rings included in the kit were a Hastings 1⁄16, 1⁄16, 3⁄16 package using a moly-faced top ring and standard tension oil rings. As we mentioned in last year’s article, the LA engine is cool because the crankcase does not require any clearance to fit the long-stroke crankshaft.
