Cylinder in second photo looks broken to me. Also piston skirt looks like it has cracked side to side. Wonder what the rest look like.

Appeas to be aftermarket pistons in rebored cylinders in GM boxes. The boxes part may be just an impression.
All GM supplied cylinder kits were standard size. Maybe this is obvious though.

I don't believe those are pistons cracks but casting marks on the GM "cast" pistons.

Those are '64 cylinders with pressed on rings to make them fit '65-'69. Clarks has them and mentions GM doing this.

These are sold by Clarks and they are GM parts. Google the part number. Clarks sells them Std +20 +30 +40 and +60 over.
Check out Clarks part number CX4295 they tie it to GM part number 3869276.
Clarks price per kit is $110.00

To support my statement , otherwise the owner may have measured them for over bore ?

The ring doesn't hurt anything those are a nice find , I have had many sets and I'm curious if all 6 have the ring often some do and some do not.

Holy cow, these aren't sold yet! If I didn't have a few sets already I'd have sent a PM in 10 seconds. FWIW the ABCD marks are piston weight classes. You're supposed to match opposing pistons to improve balance.

I believe ALL NOS GM piston/cylinder units were standard bore for their year, I do not Believe GM made over bore Corvair pistons, they only sold standard bore piston replacement units, it even states this in the clarks note on the piston page in their NOS catalog, so I believe those are standard bore piston replacement units, the 0.030 on the box is the GM parts group number per the parts book, all GM cylinder/piston units are in group 0.030 as Rod states.

Check out the note from the Clarks page below, "All are standard Size"

[www.corvair.com]

Also as Craig states, great deal on these, after you wear out the Stock GM pistons you can get new after market new pistons for the cylinders!

I don't know what you guys are looking at but those are 64 cylinders with the ring pressed on from GM so they could use them in later years. They are std late pistons, 64-69 non smog.

I see no cracks just casting lines.

I took a look at a cylinder I have. My mistake on the cylinder. That is the cutaway area on the LM cylinders. That right side of the piston skirt on the inside still looks weird.

Free bump!


Same here Craig. I would pick them up but already have a NIB set just like these. I paid more than $400 for mine about 3 years ago. Maybe people are holding on to cash for Christmas gifts?

I don't need them, either.

I still have my set cast STD pistons that have been weighed and matched to weighed rods by Clark's for a balanced engine. Used the cylinders on the Mouse House 110 Engine. Don't know where I am going to use pistons and rods now since I have forged pistons for the Big Valve engine.
