The height compression calculates the compression height which is the distance from the pinhole to the deck of the piston. Get accurate measurements in terms of inches and meters with this tool.

## What Is Piston Compression Distance?

The piston height compression is the dimension or the distance from the flat top of the piston to the center of the piston pin.

The piston compression distance is also referred to as the piston pin height to avoid confusion. The piston compression distance is adjusted relative to the required efficiency of the engine. The precise person compression height increases the efficiency of the engine at a high speed.

## How to Determine Compression Height?

The compression height is the distance between the center of the wrist pin to the crown of the piston.

For calculating the piston compression height, use the following formula:

Piston compression height =BH-(½)CS-RL-DC

Or

CH=BH−.5∗CS−RL−DC

Where:
• CH is the compression height
• BH is the block height
• CS is the crank stroke
• RL is the rod length
• DC is the deck clearance

### Practical Example:

Let the block height is 6 inches, the crank stone is 3 inches long, the rod length of the engine be 1.5 inches and the deck clearance is 2 inches. Then calculate the piston compression distance.

Solution:

We know the compression height person's formula

CH = BH – .5*CS – RL – DC

Insert the values in the above formula

CH = 6- .5*3 – 1.5 – 2

Then

CH = 1inch

CH = 0.0254 m

The piston compression distance is 1 inch or 0.0254 m.

## Size of the Compression Piston:

#### There are three things you need to decide when deciding the size of the piston.

• The Block Height
• The Connecting Rod Length
• The Stroke Length

### The Block Heights:

The block height is measured from the crankshaft to the centerline of the deck.

 Displacement Cubic Inches Liters Deck Height (inches) 302 4.9 9.025 305 5.0 9.025 327 5.4 9.025 350 5.7 9.025 350(LT5) 5.7 9.025 350(LS1) 5.7 9.240 364(LQ4) 6.0 9.240 383 6.3 9.025 400 6.6 9.025 396 6.5 9.800 402 6.6 9.800 427 7.0 9.800 454 7.4 9.800 502 8.2 9.800

### The Connecting Rod Lengths:

The Connecting rod length is measured between the centers of the big end and the little end.

 Displacement Cubic Inches Liters Big End Dia. (inches) Rod Length (inches) 302 4.9 2.1000 5.7000 305 5.0 2.1000 5.7000 327 5.4 2.1000 5.7000 350 5.7 2.1000 5.7000 350(LT5) 5.7 2.1000 5.7400 350(LS1) 5.7 2.2500 6.0980 383 6.3 2.1000 6.0000 400 6.6 2.1000 5.5650 396 6.5 2.2000 6.1350 402 6.6 2.2000 6.1350 427 7.0 2.2000 6.1350 454 7.4 2.2000 6.1350 502 8.2 2.2000 6.1350

### The Stroke Length:

The stroke length is twice the distance from the centerline and the crankshaft.

 Displacement Cubic Inches Liters Bore (inches) Stroke (inches) 302 4.9 4.000 3.000 305 5.0 3.740 3.480 327 5.4 4.000 3.250 350 5.7 4.000 3.480 350(LT5) 5.7 3.898 3.661 350(LS1) 5.7 3.898 3.622 364(LQ4) 6.0 4.000 3.622 383 6.3 4.000 3.800 400 6.6 4.125 3.750 396 6.5 4.094 3.766 402 6.6 4.125 3.766 427 7.0 4.250 3.766 454 7.4 4.250 4.000 502 8.2 4.470 4.000

## Working of thisCalculator:

Let's have a look at the simple working of the piston compression distance:

Input:

• Enter the Block height, Crank stoke, Rod length, and Deck clearance in their respective fields
• Tap Calculate
Output:
• Height Compression

## FAQs:

### What Are the Benefits of High Compression of Pistons?

Higher compression allows for a larger amount of fuel/air mixture to be successfully combusted and you can generate more power by the larger piston compression distance.
