ID some TRW pistons???? Please???

I've got a set of TRW pistons that I got on a package deal. The only number's on the top's of them are: 7064P .030
Then, on the underside I can see TRW and the number's:
262-98 If anyone out there could tell me what these are I'd really be greatful! They were in with a bunch of sbc part's, but.........................?????

Take two measurements.

1. The diameter across the skirt about half an inch up from the bottom.

2. The distance from the wrist pin hole to the crown of the piston.

It will be nigh on impossible to get one end of the caliper centered on the wrist pin hole. Do this,

Measure from the very top of the wrist pin hole to the crown and add 0.4635" to your measurement.

This should tell you what combination of stroke/rod length/bore size the piston is for.

Prob a 350, single valve relief (trough-type). 0.030 is the oversize, obviously.

FWIW, the only hit I got in re these pistons was from a guy who was also replacing them due to breakage. Was in a ZZ4, IIRC.

Mine are banged up bad. Big pieces are missing from detonation. I will take them out soon and get some different I guess. The main website doesn't even provide the specs to them neither. What piston would you suggest going with?

Without knowing a lot more about your deal, I'd be reluctant to make any specific recommendations.

Any of the major manufacturers makes good pistons in cast, cast hypereutectic or forged- I would contact them with all the specs on the engine including how you will be using it and let them make their best recommendations.

Then, shop around for the best prices for whatever piston you decide on.

Wiseco Speed Pro TRW Sealed Power Keith Black Silvolite would be a start.

That said, there are "lesser" brand pistons out there that may fit your needs (Badger pistons, for instance, used to be fine by me for a plain-vanilla cast piston), but remember- the piston is a highly stressed part that makes expensive noises if they go south.

Good luck.
