Anyone have any sage advice regarding pistons for my 50 Pan? Long story short, I'm buying new pistons and wonder if anyone can tell me if they've had good or bad experiences with any particular manufacture's pistons.
So far I've found the following online...
I'm thinking about going with the "MC" brand that are Moly coated, only because they advertise "feature cast construction with moly (moS2) coating which helps reduce friction and wear, while allowing adequate break in." They cost about $150 a set including pins, keepers, and rings.
Another brand is "The Keith Black 390 Hypereutectic alloy". They're listed as a performance pistion, with 9:1 compression where the MC brand is 8.5:1. They cost about $200 a set.
Wiseco has a 9:1 set for about $200.
V-Twin has a 8.5:1 set for for about $140.
Colony has a 8.5:1 set for about $125.
Any advice, or suggestions, is appreciated.
