Are they the same crown height or did you have to pick /modify a different rod? Interesting build. Who's doing the engine work for you?

piston is raised crown similar to an intruder type design , stuck with a m42 rod , they are out of the pot about 1mm , local engine shop doing the machine work but im building the motor myself , mind you its still a big trial at the moment so it could all turn too s"""t quite quickly . it works on paper and looks like it will so fingers crossed proof be in the pudding .. :roll:

well it was all going so well , dry built the motor today and turns out some issues with piston valve pockets , will need to strip and get these machined , gutted but was half expecting it just hoping theres enough meat in them , have to see what machine shop says ..worth a gamble though . :(

I did ask a guy I know about using those pistons,,, well I showed him a pic of your engine with the pistons,,, he recognised the pistons and said that there was valve cutout issues. I maybe should have said earlier - but thought you must have machined them already
