I know this won't help but you might be interested to hear about my cammy, it has some strange +60 pistons in with three compression rings. I thought they maybe from an Austin 7, but this appears not to be the case. My bores are barrel shaped just over a thou or more in each, there is loads of skirt clearance, in the order of seven thou as I recall, but with new rings in recently (and a new bottom end from Alfa) it is as sweet as anything using top to bottom of the dipstick marks in just over 100miles. Excellent machine......

Just found these on my daily browse for parts on eBay.
I would imagine you might have already seen them, but if not, here you are.

Thanks Nick....I hadn't seen them but they are listed as for the pushrod 600cc engine...not the 4F.

Having had a very useful PM discussion with Ian Scott, I'm going to re-use my existing pistons with aluminium buttons in the gudgeon pins.
