Re: Need 500 piston

They only problem with that is availability. You can't find racing fuel just anywhere around here. I think there are some places that sell the prefilled aluminum 1 gal cans of it like you can buy kerosene in, but that's about it within easy driving distance. I definitely try to keep the octane up. I...

Re: Need 500 piston

I'm sure you are correct, brother! There's also a high likelihood that my buddy at Seminole put crap gas in it while it was down there after the trip. In any case, yes! I will continue to use high test NE and add either av gas or racing fuel to it. The other issue it yo get it gassing right when it ...

Re: Need 500 piston

Yep. I run av gas in the mix. I'll likely have to toss out the av gas i have on hand since it will be a year since purchase before I can use it

That's a big 10-4, diggin!!! That's probably my favorite ride to date. I love the long ride and cypress tunnels. I can't wait to do it again

Re: Need 500 piston

Been off the grid for a bit, but I'm back on the boat. Got a new set of pistons, now I have to finish tearing down the engine and get it bored 30 over. Hopefully I'll be back on the water before the weather gets cold. Lol

Re: Need 500 piston

I hear ya, boys! I'm doing my best. I hope I can make it this year. Losing that piston is putting a damper on funds. Don't worry, I will let everyone know when I can make it and we will do it up even better next time!

Need 500 piston

Anybody have or know where I can get a stock 10.5/1 "peanut" piston or even a whole set without buying a whole parts engine?? Broke a ring land on a piston and I can't seem to locate one. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

Re: gotta rebuild

That is certainly something to consider. But does getting "in line" require any sort of down payment, or does he sell that many engines that he is unconcerned about getting it sold??

Deano, I never had the engine dino's but we rebuilt it with all new bearings, rings, 120 RV cam, beefed up lifter springs, new lifters, timing chain and gears. And just recently added a aluminum intake and factory quadrajet
