Default Ruckstell power head

Does anyone have an information about the Ruckstell aluminum power head made by Alcoa. The only thing I have found is an old ad which claimed 25 percent more power and 10 to 15 percent top speed. Wondering what the compression ratio might be. Looks a lot like a stock head.

I had an NOS one I installed on a car about 15 years ago. My memory is that it was not very high compression. Still on the car and he drives it about 5000 miles a year. That is all I remember.

Thanks for the information. Do you have any idea what years they produced the head? Did you use a regular head gasket and studs? Any info would be appreciated.
