And these were in the shop. The Aston BTW the owner of the engine shop had the pistons custom made for a fraction of what OEM cost.

Did the same with Ferrari V-12s, JP. Not to mention the amount of TIME it takes to get 'em shipped from across th' pond!

We used Wesco, in Ohio. They'd make a "baker's dozen" for about the price of <span style="font-style: italic">two</span> OEM jugs!

I used to use Egge Machine, Get all the oversize and special offsets we ever could use for Flatheads.

Not sure where he got them but they were going to the USA. I thnk he said he paid about $140 each. We were considering getting them made for the Vauxhall till i found an OEM set for more economical.
