Might be worth measuring or CCing the combustion chambers first, incase it's already been done.

If it hasn't, then a skim won't do it any harm and more compression on a Pinto is always good.

Clean it and get it in and running, how many miles do you plan on doing in it a year ? 

If you feel the need change to an injection head later

So I took the head off to see if anything was out of place as expected all was ok the pistons are not the original ones as they don't have 20 hc on then but they have some small Markings on them did any one know what they mean
