Butch <waedison@xxxxxxxxxxx>: Dec 01 08:31AM -0800

383 pistons, as there are no more stock 426 ...more

I just talked to bud. What a great guy. I may end up taking my parts down
there and having him match them up. Thanks for the reference

If you insist on going this way, good that you are getting someone that
knows what they are doing. However you would save a lot
of money and headaches to have custom pistones made from someone ...more

OK, it has been some time since an up-date on Brutus., But it has been
worth it to me. 2nd time getting the body and paint done right I got a
great deal on that work plus a little more from ...more

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. If you will read what I said, my
build had a purpose from the very start. There are lots and lots of Mopar
classic cars that are near 100% stock. ...more

Oh, BTW , I had the stock hood painted red like the rest of the car. It

Good call Roland. OK seems to me that we have some advice if one wants to
do it up full boat and some advice if one wants to just get some pistons
that will work with current setup, have I got that ...more
Bill Parker <hemirr@xxxxxxxxx>: Nov 30 08:12PM -0500

Oh I meant to add that for my MW engine I had a set made by Ross to my
exact specs (my machine shop's exact specs I should probably say). They
were $800 and change, although that's been a while ...more

Mo Chaplain. More like Howard Cosell..Tell it like it is! Good for you. Try to use the K.I.S.S. Rule here. Might end up with some great memories!
MO <micher@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>: Dec 01 12:26AM -0800

Butch, I think Bill has the right answer for you. Custom pistons exactly
what you want and no further work needed. $800 I think is a fair price.
