Re: When is a 28 not a 28?

The pic of the '29 Murray that Brent posted is the same body and year as mine I am doing (but my spare is in the rear, not the front fender).

I believe mine was the same color as in the pic when...

Re: Opinions please

Good advice too. That is the plan.

As of right now, it looks to be standard pistons. The whole thing (and head) will be shot peened to clear out the water passages and other build up. Then...

Re: Opinions please

Good advice. When we rebuild it, I plan on having it surfaced if needed. I only meant that, at least visually, it looked good.

Re: Opinions please

Yes. I will have new babbits. The ones in the engine were cracked and needed to be redone anyway.

There are sleeves on all 4 cylinders. They appear to be 1/8 sleeves. I have no markings on the 3...

Re: Opinions please

The third has no morkings either. Just that arrow and some sloppy engraving.

Thanks. I agree.

Second piston cleaned off. No markings but that arrow and there is an "R" stamped in the top. It looks like someone use an engraver on this one and put the number 88 on it very...

Re: Opinions please

Thanks for the input.

I just got back from seeing him. He says we can still use it. He asked me what the piston size was as well, but I do not know. The pistons have a ton of burnt carbon on them...

My plan from the start was to put all new hardened valve seats in. Is it still possible with the wear like that?

Nice set for whoever gets it. I do need them, but I also need the funds to buy them.
