Re: Pistons

nathan i can't help you with a answer mate but i know one thing if i'd just taken an engine out due to piston failure i would never put in second hand pistons always new, goes the same for rings gaskets & bearings you'll never see anybody using these second hand.....

hope it helps..

Pistons are slightly different mate so don't think they'll be a straight swap, but as above would also be inclined to go for new (perhaps even uprated) parts in this case either way.
