Post where is the overbore stamped on a rebuild piston..

Okay guys well the first 400 I tried to buy the guy sold it on me but now I am trying to buy a different one... thing is it has been completly taken apart so I was wondering where the overbore is stamped on a rebuild piston... I have heard it is on the top of the piston but do some companies put it anywhere else????

Most all are on the top, A standard bore may not be marked.

most are stamped on the top but some are only inked , the only way to really know is to measure the piston across the skirt approximately at the pin, then add .001-.0025 that will be the bore size it is for.. factory pistons OEM will have letters of the alphabet stamped on them A-being smaller K-being larger.

you can't properly build an engine if you can't measure, go get a cheap dial vernier at a tool store (less than $20.00) at least this will give you comparative values to work with.

well the thing is I know a guy who has all the tools... I was going to see if he would lend them to me since he will be helping me do the engine (my first build I have an idea but he knows more) I just don't think he will want to lend his tools to me to go to Calgary to look at an engine

The engine I'm building now has std.(NO!!!get you mind outta the gutter) stamped on the top.But if I remember my TRW pistons I bought for my other rebuild that got sold.Had no overbore markings on them,and they were .030 over pistons.
