Re: WTB Good set of rods and pistons

Measured pistons again today. Still come up with 3.738 to 3.736. This T sitting long time, but I did get it running without much difficulty. Runs a little rough with compression of 35lbs on all cylinders. Pistons are cast Iron STD. Thanks for your advice. Don

Re: WTB Good set of rods and pistons

The pistons themselves are OK I believe. It is the rod fit to the wrist pins on two of the four pistons that are bad. The wrist pin has a lot of movement in the piston. I hope I am making clear the problem, I am not a mechanic, but trying.

Re: WTB Good set of rods and pistons

I was of course going to hone the engine and with new (used) pistons would have to bore the engine.

WTB Good set of rods and pistons

Want to freshen 1925 engine with complete valve job and new rings. Now find two pistons are bad, but bearings and crank look good. I don't think engine has ever been apart. If I can find a set 0f rods and pistons it would save me from a complete overhaul. Thanks to all of you!

finishing firewall

Purchase 3/4" oak finished on both sides plywood to make firewall for my speedster build. Think I would stain with cherry and then a good coat of varnish. Does that sound appropriate? If not please give me some advise. Thank you, Don Hanson
