    What's a better source for 2 cylinder pistons?

    Right now, I'm looking at various suppliers of 2 cylinder engine parts. Sharps tractor parts looks to have a good deal on pistons.

    Anyone else have some good suggestions? Wish I could find some NOS liquid propane pistons. They add a little more compression.

    The pistons that came out of my 70 were # A 1303 GEP's.

    There is another source I found about a year ago that had them cheaper than Sharp's. I will try to find that information and get back with you. I have a '47 G that I would like to put some compression pistons in sometime.

    Ok, thanks. Just let me know if you find out. Otherwise, I may have to go with Sharp's. Been searching for even some NOS LP or even gas pistons with no success.

    Thanks Scotty. Yeah Steiner is a well known parts house. I'll take a look through their items. I think they had some good gasket sets in addition to other items. Thanks.

    Another fellow tractor fanatic told me about a place in Massachusetts that sells engine rebuild kits. They've been around a long, long time. Foley Engines is the name. Waiting on a price from them for the JD 2 cylinders.
    After viewing some of their other kits for 6 cylinder diesel engines, I may buy at least one for a large IH tractor.

    When I have time, I'll share some pics of the pistons that were in the 70. You'll see why they cannot be reused.

    .
    Was given some misinformation about this company. At this present time, they don't sell 2 cylinder engine parts. Would have been nice if they would have taken the time to reply back and let me know this.

    If anyone else is in need of pistons, I'm holding off purchasing from Sharpe's. Found out about a JD dealer that has been helping collectors to locate NOS(New Old Stock) parts.

    I hadn't contacted a dealer about pistons since I figured the price would be inflated. Turns out they don't carry them and are obsolete.

    It's just too risky in my opinion to purchase used pistons without first seeing them up close.

    Considering the amount of work involved, I don't need any headaches and do-overs caused by me trying to be cheap.

    Kinda dealing with the same issues myself. I'm finding that getting quality used parts are harder to come by. Ordered a differential gear the other day only to find it was cracked when it showed up.

    If you find a good vendor, please share. I'll do the same.
