New Old Stock Pistons

Post by amc fan » Wed Aug 15, 2018 3:21 pm

I have a set of Pistons that need lateral gas ports, lightning, wrist pin Oilers and skirts to be coated, I remember somebody posted on here a company that does it but I could not find it. Can I get some suggestions from you guys. Thanks

Almost any piston company that offers that option will do it.
If you send them to the original manufacture I am sure that they will machine them as they would be set up
to do it.
There is a fixture you can get to do vertical gas ports on ebay which is well made. I have is and it works great.
You just need a mill or drill press you can bolt it down on the table.

Rebco that's it. The piston manufacturer is out of business. I see someone makes rings with lateral grooves cut in them if you can get them in your size . Thanks for the help guys.

Coatings are not as easy as it might seem. Many coating services won't guarantee their process unless the material is new-from-the manufacturer.

Their explanation is it's likely parts having been handled, on the shelf, in and out of the box, have picked up contaminants.

Total Seal just introduced their "gas ported" rings, with slots on the topsides.
