I like the pistons. I will bet they up the compression a couple of points. Do the rods maintain stock center to center distance or has the pin been relocated ?|

Some of you are aware that I have been doing some R&D on a new Deluxe high compression piston design and also some new "bearingless" aluminum rods.
I just returned from two week trip to Florida and am able to report that some 400 miles of testing has been done on this test motor at various speeds.
I am very happy with the results so far. These rods bolt right on the crank as is with .002 clearance. The pin is full floating and also bearingless. No more fitting and fiddling with shims and shells. The rods can be reworked back to the old shim and shell method if ever required. The rods are also available for KJs. The dome pistons are working good too. There is a bark and a bite I have not experienced before. There is tons of torque now too.
Email me if you would like more info on these parts.
BTW If you ever get to Ocala Florida - do the Don Garlits Museum! - Conveniently located close to Eustis!
