Yeah........... got my pistons tonight! they are ace



proper pistons, teflon coated slipper jobbies, i believe this means i can fry eggs on it and then wipe them clean....



nice pockets and made to be a nice high compression



rods will be with me on wednesday!

this means my bottom end can be built and fitted asap!

pistons cam with new rings and some gugeon pins. all good!

nothing stopping me doing it now, just need to decide if i can afford a super spec head or just new cams, springs and solid lifters.....

longest part is waiting for parts, i dont have the ability to buy everything in one go, but so far its been good and i havnt spent anywhere near as much as i thought i would, i need to sort my gear box out tho. new final drive to fit, got all the bits, just need to do it

monster, think the run in period may be avoided, the way this engine will wear 1000 miles will be a major part of its life lol!

matt, they are meant to be really ace pistons, not cheap aswell, which i have learnt bodes well!

im tempted to have a window fitted to the sump and the side of the block, this way people can see the crank, rods and pistons!

cheers for dropping the wheels off robin, just need you to find me some tyres for them......
