Head 202 piston- Grrrr... Can anyone throw me a piston?

Hey Fellas.

Recently started to clean up a 202 for my old holden, but upon starting to re-ring the thing I've found a broken piston in-between the 2 upper rings. Just wondering if anyone could donate or sell me a 202 piston on a rod cheap? It'd probably need to be posted out to me "in rural Tassie", but It'd be bloody appreciated!! I've been looking around and putting the feelers out there, but so far to no avail..

Thanks in advance!
JP.

you'll need to get the rod re sized if you use one from another engine not a good idea to mix rods on another crank

Damn. Even a piston that I could get pressed onto the existing conrod would be fine?

Thanks for looking, mate! I know. They're certainly getting hard to find in some parts, that's for sure.

Hi Wazza.
I'd taken some pics and uploaded them here. Piston is 202 standard bore, so if you could part with one of those it'd be greatly appreciated. Happy to pay a few $ and postage to get it here. It was a real disappointment finding a dead one....

Hi JP, mate I have a couple of options for you, I do have some std, bore pistons but they re not flat tops like yours is, but I do have a set of them, the other option is I do have a flat top like yours, but it's pretty tight on the gudgeon pin, I haven't tried to free it up, should remove ok from the rod. Choice is yours
Cheers,
Dave
