KB FORGED PISTONS
« on: February 19, 2016, 03:16:36 PM »
I am now a distributor for KB pistons.   https://www.uempistons.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=7
They have a nice forged piston that is reasonably priced.
They also offer coated skirts by Line2Line    https://www.line2linecoatings.com/
This coating goes on thicker than others & is designed to wear in so clearances are kept to a minimum.
Soon they will be offering anodized tops & top ring groove. There is still some testing going on so it's a little ways off. More options for the builders.

I'm working on that. Right now they have a .030 over [3.905]. I'm trying to get them to go up to .060 over. I have the 110 pistons in .060, .065 & .070 oversizes. I'll post any updates.

Another one I'm working on. I make the suggestions then they take the idea to the higher ups for the decision. They decide if there's enough of a demand to make it. They don't do customs. If you have any takeouts you can send them to me & I forward it to them. If they have a blank they can make it from then the chances are better. I've been bugging them for quite a few years now. They're starting to come around.  :wink:

Just got approval on this. It will be 10 - 12 weeks before they're available though.   :idunno:
