MG MGA - 1600 mk1 engine rebuild

Hi All
Just stripped engine down and taken to machine shop for possible re-bore. I had Hepolite 14986 +30 9:1 CR pistons in. Likely to need +60 re-bore. Can anyone tell me where I might find these pistons. If these are not available which are the best 8.3:1 CR pistons to fit.
Brian Paddon

I had a lot of trouble getting 9:1 pistons for my 1622.

Talk to Basil Adams over on the MGA Forum;

I got mine from him. Good quality and good price.

I used Moss part 420-568 Aerolite's .060 if you cant find the Hepolite ones
