Set of 8 Silv-o-lite 8.8 to 1 cast pistons. Pistons are used with approx 5 to 6000 miles on them. (I replaced them with forged 8.5 to 1 pistons when I built my supercharged engine)
Pistons measure 3.5255" to 3.526" approx 3/4" up from the bottom of the piston skirt.
$100 for the set plus shipping.

I thought about it, but after breaking the skirt on one of my OEM pistons, I will go with forged, as well.

Carl, the stock GM pistons are not a very good piston to start with + they are over 50 years old also. The old man that built motors for me (built engines for 55 years) he would not use a set of O/E pistons with more than 50,000 miles on them. The Rover A/E pistons are a good piston (over 400,000 miles on my rover 3.5 + .020/10.25-1 pistons) & hold up very well. The United Machine Silvolite pistons are a good U.S. piston & we have not had any problems with them, but more than 50k I will put in new ones. Thanks Bill! I got them Thursday
