Need One Piston For 348 Chevy

A Friend Of Mine Is Rebuilding A 348 Chevy Motor Which Has 11.25 To 1 Pistons. One Is Cracked And He Would Like To Replace Just One Piston. Any Leads On Where To Get Just One Piston As Opposed To Having To Purchase An Entire Set. Prefers A Standard 11.25 To 1 Piston. Would Consider A 10.5 To 1 If That Is All That Is Available. Would Also Consider An Oversize 11.25 To 1 As He Is Willing To Bore That One Cylinder If Necessary. Appreciate Any Help. You Can Email Me As He Is Not Yet Into The Computer World.

Try Ross pistons. I know they have some for 409's maybe they'd be willing to make one for a 348.

We were in touch with Ross but they only sell sets and a set cost over $800.

When I get to shop in the AM I will check to see what is still available, but just to bore one hole seems lot a lot of work.

$669 is the best price I could dig up on a set of 348 pistons. I'm afraid your buddy might be stuck with buying a set unless Cantrell or somebody else just happens to have one. In my opinion that's the best decision anyway.

I can possibly get one piston , It would be a special order deal , but I looked at Egge web site and it looks like that would be the best way to go , and I would bore to an over size , If its worth fixin to you , then do it right cause a lot of times trying to save money will cost you more in the long run.
Been there done that!!!

That one piston needs to weigh as much as the others do or you will be out of balance with your reciprocating mass. Usually this is why you buy a full set of pistons as oposed to buying one at a time.

No Luck

I have contacted Egge, Kanter, J C Whitney, JE, Arias, Ross, and others to no avail. Anyone have a contact to a salvage yard hotline that I can try that avenue?
