The 1500's compression of 9:1 is not a result of the head!  It is the result
of different pistons!  I can take a stock head from a 74 1500 or an 80 1500
and the compression will still be 9:1 on the 76 1500 engine in my car.  I
can take the same head that is on my engine and place it on a 74 engine or
an 80 engine and the compression will be 7.5:1.
