Piston pictures

Going from left to right in this picture

614 grams, 617 grams and 633 grams - these are weights with the pins and the rings fitted

In this picture the line continues showing 617 grams, 633 grams and 634 grams (weight values refer to with pins and rings fitted)

So using a bit of a crap method I shoved my digital caliper in as far as it would go and made some measurements of the wrist pin boss area of the pistons

Measurements shown in next post due to number of attachment restrictions...
