Engine rebuild, L18 pistons in an L16?


Recommended Posts

I mentioned needing two cc plates. Usually the second plate with the ring molded to it is for pop-up pistons or for cylinder heads where the valve edges protrude from the flat surfaces slightly. If using dished or flat pistons that sit below the deck of the block, a flat plate is fine. Many Datsun pistons sit just about .010" out of the deck though, so beware of that.
