Best place to get L series parts?

Post by Rheis » 14 Jun 2010 20:04

So seeing as how no one has noticed my post in my project thread ... http://www.the510realm.com/viewtopic.ph ... 0&start=30
the block went to a machine shop to be honed and it turned out great. They also took a look at the pistons to make sure all the clearences were correct, removed the old rings etc. Unfortunately #4 has a broken 3rd ring land. The good news is its a Nissan piston. It measures aprox 86mm diameter and 38mm from center of pin to top (measured with a crappy plastic caliper) it has the nissan emblem stamped inside the skirt with a 4 beside it. Opposite inside skirt marked AT5U61 and the top of the piston says STD P90. According to Jason Grey engine spec page I asssume it is "L28 (early)---------- 38.1mm /10.90cc dish in 280Z, early ZX.('75-'80)/ 86mm bore" So where should I get this piston from? I have heard going to the Nissan dealer is expensive but if the quality is better and it will be exact same who cares about $. Also is the dealer where I should pick up my rings and bearings? what kind of rings? moly.. chrome..?

thanks
this is for my turbo motor btw

thanks

He is the best of the best (think Top Gun), and he is local to you. And you can even walk your dog at his new location, on beautiful Boundary Bay; at the bottom of 104 Street, just off Highway 10.

To prep your block and get the bottom end ready, I think you're best off with Andy Rheis ....
