How is this engine to be used and does it have a closed exhaust system...?

I would probably use a #3910 Autolite with that compression ratio.

A 514 at 15/1 will have a domed piston ... not a flat-top.
One plug is an extended tip and the other is not.

It will be a personal choice.

is the 3910 an extended tip? Would it be ok to break in the motor with 3932/3933 then go with the 3910x ?

Yes ... I personally would use a hotter "street type" plug for initial running. Something like a 3924.

A 514 with a flat-top piston at "0" deck, #1018 head gasket and a 70cc combustion chamber is about 13.4/1 compression ratio.

The heads would need to be milled near 60 cc's to be at 15/1 compression.

Your personal choice is to use non-extended tip spark plugs; there is not an actual NEED to do so.
