When you pull the one head off you need to measure the diameter of the piston/cylinder!
Verify the dimension with a stock 1600 cc Piston/ cylinder Diameter size.
I call it the P&G Tool.
The P&G tool is a device that measures the volumn of a cylinder, usually costs about a $1000.00.
They have this tool at the race courses to measure the cc of the limited motor classes.
Hopefully someone can step in to finish this answer.

So we got our engine last night and we got an aftermarket crank pulley "Scat" but I guess he forgot to give us bolts for the pully, because there are threads on the end but we have no bolt. Can we use a grade 8.8 bolt from hard ware store, what size would it be?

its not the whole crank, it just the pully on the end for the generator belt. (IE the stock pully has holes in it and no timing marks, but the scat has no holes and timing marks, but they are the same diameter)
