    Hey Ol Buddy .........I guess I should have got a 166 piston when I could. Course I don't know as I need a hotter 111S........
    I love odd interchangeable parts. My Bugeye Healey 3 ended radiator hose used a Mercedes hose trimmed down.
    How you been?

    Just make sure you're not cutting off flow through the transfers with that slab-sided CT piston. If a saw engine uses a through-transfer design with a windowed piston, and you install a non-windowed piston, you'll lose acceleration and the top RPM range will be lower.

    My holy grail consists of 038’s.. I keep coming back to them. I can’t help it. I make them happy and release them back into the wild. Then get sad about the loss and get another. The process is sickening....

    Scott, The CT piston won't work. Look at the hight between the pin and crown. CT is taller.
    CT doesn't have windows either.

    Lee -

    Got it. Just trying to figure out if we have another off-the-shelf option out there.

    Thanks,

    A NOS set of cases were on eBay a couple of years ago.
    Went back to look.....gone.
    Gotta jump on them. Lol
    041G could be had with a 1/2” chain.
