MG MGA - 1600 plus 20 high compression Pistons wanted?
|Anyone got a set of these they want to sell?|
|I think you'll have top specify which 1600 you are after, 1588 or 1622.|
Yes 1588 plus 20 thou oversize Bill
Flat top and low compression are easy to obtain but high compression alas proving difficult
|I might have some larger oversize 13:1 from a 1622 engine, but that's the closest I could come.|
|Original high compression (8.3:1) and low compression (7.8:1?) 1489cc and 1588cc engines all used dished pistons. Low compression was dished deeper. Flat top pistons would be extra high compression (maybe 9.1:1 or thereabout).|
The 1622cc engine in standard high compression (8.9:1) form used flat top pistons. Low compression (8.3:1) had dished pistons.
