Lynite is the trademark used by the Aluminum Casting Company in Cleveland. Filed in 1914 and expired 1986. I first saw their trademark on several crankcase parts on White buses 1923-1925. Today I saw it on an Ebay, Maxwell intake manifold dated 11,15. My Maxwell manifolds don't have the trademark. I see reference to Lynite for racing pistons and rods on the forum but wondered if it was used on any other accessories for T's

My original R Fronty engine had Lynite Con Rods and Bu-Nite Pistons. They are dime top pistons and the same ones in the engine since the mid 50's. One was pitted from a piece of a broken valve. I believe they are the original pistons since at least 1926-27. The engine hadn't had a lot of use up till 1965 and raced again in the late 1980s - early 1990s

Thanks Mark. It's nice to see the Bu-Nite logo cast in the pistons. I couldn't find anything by Goggling Buy-nite like I did LYnite. Maybe from the same company but a different alloy.

Bu-Nite Pistons are listed in both the 1926 Fronty & 1928c Zenith Catalogues for Fronty Engines. I suspect they made different model Bu-Nite pistons for different fronty engines.
