Piston lightening
« on: June 13, 2024, 10:03:29 AM »
Has anyone tried to lighten a piston by removing material from the underside or the skirt.

I haven't tried it myself, but I'm guessing this is a case of "You have really got to know what you are doing!" Modern pistons are a lot shorter than "classic" engine pistons. Sorry I can't be of help really.
