New 17T / 20T piston for sale.

Post  rob spence on Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:27 pm

I bought this in error as I had to got to 20 thou over in the end.

This is a brand new old stock standard size piston with rings, pin and circlips. Price is £80 including postage...I am not making a profit on this, this is the exact price I paid just 4 weeks back.
Fits 20T and 17T.
Many thanks.

17T/20T piston

Post  piston 197 on Tue Jan 02, 2018 1:55 pm

Rob , if it has a cut out in rear skirt it will fit 17T engine to number 17T 3032,but not 20T, if no cut out it will fit 17T after No 17T 3032 and ALL 20T engines

might be worth letting the potential buyer know, the one for the 20T and late 17T is a very difficult piston to source, the earlier one less so

Thanks JH there is no cut out in the skirt.

John
What happened to the 17T after that number so it has a different piston.

I was tempted with this sale as a spare but then realised its Standard and both of mine have been bored.

Direct from the Goddard book "Engines numbered up to 17T/3033 inclusive had a slight cutaway on the piston skirt which limited the effective length of the piston. In consequence, the selective assembly of the piston and bore became more and more critical in order to reduce the general level of piston noise. A method of dealing with this was to use a full skirted piston which in turn entailed a modification to the design of the cylinder as regards the height of the induction port"
