WTB KA24e pistons

Recommended Posts

Before I buy a new set of pistons figured I'd see if anyone had a set of them for sale.  Has to be the early model ones (non-floating)  Thanks!

The '90-'96 D-21 Hardbody KA-E truck pistons were non floating. I have a set of S13 floating ones and a couple of non floaters and the only difference I can see is the S13 pistons have grooves in them for the C clips to hold the pin in. I test fit a regular press fit pin and they seem to be the same size diameter. The S13 pins are shorter length but the pistons should work on press fit D21 pins.

Great information Mike!  I would rather stick with the flat top truck pistons.  If anyone has any?  Planing on heading to the machine shop soon to get the Z22 bored.

I think the small dish is the same whether it is press fit or floating. The floaters are a lot easier to assemble/ tear down, and all you have to do is have the machine shop hone .001-.0015 out the rod end, and drill a couple of oil holes.

I had a machine shop press them together backwards once, so I just do this now. I just bought a set from Summit for $167.00. Silvolite #9115 std.

They work great. I abuse the hell out of them , and had to buy a 2nd set due to my own tuning error. The first set took a pretty good beating.
