Wrist pins?
Does anyone know where i can find a factory size set of wrist pins? Bought some new Keith Black pistons but now i need wrist pins and cant find them. Thanks everyone

That may be tough...every piston I have ever bought came with them...Then again that's only been air cooled VW and small engines with a couple 2 strokes mixed in for fun

Re: Wrist pins?
They normally come with themů Call Keith Black they can point you in the right direction. An aftermarket piston usually uses a different wrist pin length as the factory ones.

Wath size pistons?

3.69" they are 0.03 over pistons. I already located some wrist pins from Diamond Racing which is 5 min. from my house. Like you said, they use a different length but the same diameter.

Re: Wrist pins?
We can get factory size wrist pins... I forget the cost though. We offer them with our ROSS pistons when customers chose to order them to use on factory Rods. We would need the dimensions though so we can make sure they are not too long or too short...

I find it strange that your pistons did NOT come with the wrist pins though... Our Ross piston kits all come with wrist pins... As well as our engine rebuild kits which come with better pistons than factory & wrist pins...

Either way, if you still need them let me know...

Did you see if your factory wrist pins fit your new pistons? You can reuse those...

They ended up coming with them. Online it didnt say they were in the package so i assumed they didnt come with them. Thanks.

They are almost like a floating pin with a locking ring on each end. I will post some pics when i get home.
