Butch, good luck finding pistons. Been awhile since I saw a set for sale (cast or forged). Now I know you can get a set custom made but that will run around $100.00/cylinder. You can also see if the ...more

Try Egge Obsolete, Diamond Racing and Wiseco. Talk to Mancini and Dan Dvorak Machine. Don't be hesitant to pick up the phone and call. (These are from a discussion on bangshift.com.)

be installed,and even a flat top chevy ...more

You need to get ahold of a MW stock eliminator racer or at this point a former MW racer they will have all sorts of pistons they no longer need.  Also you could find an engine shop that built those ...more

The trick piston set up is a 454 chevy flat top piston using the .990 wrist
pin and have the rods set up with a thick bushing and re-sized to the .990
diameter and blue printed to spec,mrmopartech ...more

Crank and rods are the same as the 426 from the 413. The only difference is

a zero deck assembly,mrmopartech
Gary Wilson <gwwilson70@xxxxxxxxx>: Nov 29 04:51PM -0800

The engine is a high block. 413 426 and 440 are high block. 361 thr 400
are low block. Don't know where you can get 30 over pistons tho. I had to
use 440 pistons and had block bored to 440.. ...more
