Default New Piston Castings

I'm thinking of having some new 4-4 1/4 inch cast iron pistons cast. It's an expensive venture. Interested in knowing if others may be in need.

Where do you go to get them made. I think there are several people needing 3 1/8 pistons for le roi engines and i dont have any extras.Im getting mufflers cast and the cost of the first one will set your hair and then the price drops.The Le Roi man

Contact Curt Holland <curt@imc-group.com>

He recently had some pistons cast for a Hercules. I don't know the size, but they're sort of generic so you might be able to machine them into whatever you like.
