blade7Are JE machining them for you?
EldavoStuart - there’s a reason I sent you the link to the nylon braided hose rather than the metal braided hose - maybe just my paranoia but I didn’t like the idea of the metal braided hose running alongside electrical cables, etc. and the potential (albeit small) of it rubbing and causing damage over time.
scam75blade7Are JE machining them for you? Yeah. They have one of my pistons for reference. They should be ready 1st Feb.

And closer to home, EMC too.
blade7Nikasil coated cylinders are probably the best option. No pistons issues, but you may need an introduction to Capricorn to go that route.

The whole point of this was to build a good, reliable, engine at a good cost, certainly not a no expense spared affair. The car gets us
