Hey Den I predicted you would go back to S&S stuff. Did it cross your mind?

Not for pistons.The S&S that are made now (106-****) for the 88" are too light and low compression for me.I'd have to change the stroke to get back to what I had with the older 1800 series.

Unfortunately as Den says the new 'one size fits all' S&S pistons suck if you have standard or slightly larger stroke but want higher compression.

In my case I was able to find some NIB 1832 series 3-5/8 +0.020 plus rings for my stash for the next time I need to rebuild. If I went for new S&S my CR would go from 10.2 (which I bumped to 11.3) back down to 9.1.

Other than finding plus sized NIB pistons from S&S it is KB or CP.
