Forged Pistons for Intek Single
« on: December 17, 2017, 03:19:56 PM »
Does anybody make forged pistons big enough for a model 33. I have been messing around and I have found the a 4.6l big bore piston would work, but I would need to have a custom wrist pin hole put in, or bore out the hole on an arc rod for an .866 wrist pin.

Still kinda heavy for this use. That seems like a lot of work for just some gain.

I have decided against a briggs, but it was 1.160. It looked like there might have been enough meat, but as I said, I am not going briggs
