196cc Clone +.003" Piston Only

Part Number: 168F-12001B
Online Price: $8.99
68mm +003-inch piston
Availability: Out of Stock.


The +.003 Over Piston fits the 196cc blocks when honed. 

This piston allows you to make minor bore corrections and prefer crosshatching and surface finish for your blueprinted 196cc clone box stock racing engine. The benefit of the .003 vs. .005, .010, or larger bores is minimal additional weight while potentially better ring seal from honing resulting in more power.
