LF2304 speed pro. Quality forged pistons with original dome shape. They are an upgraded design with low friction coating on the skir
Yep and the warranty in 1970 was 5yrs/50k!Have to remember the OE stuff had to last - at least - through the warranty period, and at a price point. The real race stuff has no requirement except to make a lot of power. Those old tractor pistons did the job, and still are 50 years later in some cases.
Enjoying this discussion immensely. I can appreciate the OE style of piston, not everyone wants the thin ring set up. (most of which are flat top or larger dome hi-compression offerings). Wishing I had not sold my new 355 ci with the TRW 11-1 L2304 .030 pistons, Crane Saturday night special solid lifter cam and Dart II heads 30 or so years ago. Priced right, last forever and take a beating ...TRW POWERFORGED PISTONS !
Bad thing is the guy I bought the block from had it bored 40 over. So I guess I'm going to 60. Main reason I bought the block was the fact that it was align bored,decked and cylinders bored and CLEAN.If you are not boring the cylinders check the bore dia. and the piston to cylinder wall clearance. Those old forgings were set up some loose while the newer stuff is designed to run tighter. And that stock bore is probably hogged out some from wear and tear. But I'd guess it'll get a rebore?
