TRW Pistons Partnr.

Hello.

I've tryed to search the web to see what kind of pistons i have but i can't seem to find them in any lists.

The top of the piston is marked "TRW L2304 0,30" and when i looked at several sites i only get partnr like "TRW L2304F 0,30" ?.

Does anyone know what the F stands for ?, Iknow the "L" stands for Forged.

They do not look like "flat tops".

Does anyone know or could some please submit a link on the subject.

Please forgive my bad english.

That sounds more like a Sealed Power number to me.

I looked it up.
Its all part of the part number L-2304F



11-1 compression ratio (with a 64cc head I assume)
.100 dome
stock pin bore .927
1.560 pin height
5/64",3/16" ring set

I looked at several TRW pistons,while I did not find anything written in stone,all part #'s with the "F" in the part # were flat top pistons.If they were dished or domed they did not have the "F" in the part # but would have something else.

P or F, pressed or floating. It denotes the type of wrist pin retention used.

Well for some reason I some of this does not make alot of sense...?

I am running part number L2238NF so does that mean non-floating pin...? If so then why are the full floating pin type pistons with that number on them...? The old part numbers just had an F in them for forged if memory serves...? Also I dont see any of the hyper-type pistons with an F on the end...? Also what would "AF" mean...?

Now not really doubting you (coldknock) but what are these other codes for...?
