I was initially concerned about the possibility of failure due to lack of oil, but after looking at things i came to a conclusion, If it fails then i'll try to do something completely different, like install a different connecting rod. It should get ... more »

Its good stuff, very chemical resistant, never had an issue with gas or oils or solvents harming it.

Loctite 609 or 648 should take care of that for you(648 would be the better choice, but 609 would do the job), You may want to use Loctite Primer N to improve the bond. Make sure both surfaced are very very clean though.

The shop I work at is a Wossner Distributor and I have asked them at least 3 times and they keep telling me they do not have a piston for them. Then I see a Wossner piston on Ebay. Do you have part #s for their pistons????

Ok, LOL I see what your saying. Never even thought of moving the pin as I would be paranoid it would fail and then the engine would fail.......the engine that hasent been used since 1981, the engine that it is near impossible to get parts for :o) LOL!!! ... more »

I really like the thought of nikasil over a steel liner, I think it would be awesomely tough & durable. My one issue with that is back to the piston. The piston that I have is the wrong piston, and while I'd love to find another piston that would
