Looks like a good start to something, do you have barrels too?

That is a good reasonable price for those, especially with the costs of shipping these days.

The one engine I have that has forged pistons, has 0.40 over old style TRW Long Skirt pistons in it.

About five years ago, I bought another full set when it became available, just to have them on hand. I think I paid $350.00 for the set back then.

A year ago, I bought a set of 0.20 over old style TRW Long Skirt pistons locally and paid $400.00 for them without a second thought.

What condition are the wrist pins? I only ask because the pistons appear to have signs of a bit of moisture on them. I like to only run standard bore like these you have.
Thanks.

These have always been in dry storage. After sitting on a shelf for 30+ years they are bound to have some signs of aging but no corrosion or moisture damage. I don’t see any signs of corrosion on the wrist pins either Dave though I’m sure they will need some lubricant after sitting for so long. I’ll try to post a closeup shot of the wrist pins later today winking smiley

Here are some pics of the wrist pins Dave. No corrosion though the factory oil seems to have left a bit of a residue once it dried. PM me with any questions.

I'm glad someone made the move so I didn't have to wrestle with it. I've got some '60 cylinders but don't really like the idea of spacers between Early cylinders and Late head registers. Maybe I'm just silly.
I do have some '64 110 heads.
I still haven't got in my brain what LM with 102 heads would net for C/R.
Anyways I almost made the move at $300 but I've got too many irons in the fire already. Long skirt TRWs are certainly attractive.
