I'd like to see these in a motor again.

Urbansoot, you have first dibs. Are you going to use them for something other than decoration?

Dibs for Eric (rotornutfd3s) who needs a good set of pistons and rods (big thread on here where one of his rods bent from hydrolock).

pschmidt, forward me your address info and email address, and I'll email you a call tag.

Thanks
Ben

$10.19. Add $5 for packing and Paypal fees.

How many do you need? Would 2 do it? Maybe we can get your motor and rotornuts's back together.

Ben, would that work, or do you guys need all four?

problem is different years bp engines had different pistons. Erics is 94-95 lower comp, where your 96 is a tad higher. Would not be wise to mix/match. I don't know what year the other guy's block is. If he has a 94-95, then Eric could send him some of his old pistons.

Understood. I guess I'll wait a few hours to see if jkballardbpl replies back. Hopefully we can sort something out that will be beneficial to everyone.

My engine is a 97. I think the comp is the same as the 96 but not sure. Ben - you are pretty knowledgable on this stuff, can you confirm. Also agree on not mixing.

Sure would like all four if possible.

Thank,
Jim

I will be traveling and will not get back on line until late tonight. Please call me if you need to contact me - 704 658-5795.

I have a set of stock rods from the motor I just picked up. I can just ship eric a new rod. I don't think his piston was ever damaged.

Looks like rotornutfd3s is sorted, so these are all yours.

I screwed up earier and input 5lbs total weight. Realistically I think this will be ~15lbs.
Shipping will be $14 + $5 for the paypal and packaging.

My paypal is patrick dot schmidt at finnegan dot com
