    I'm having a bit of a clear out and I found these at the back of the garage. There are 4 of them but on of the barrels has a crack in the liner at the bottom. All the gudgeon pins and retaining clips are there and the barrels do have MAHLE stamped on them. I've also painted them in a high temp...

    Have a couple of 1641cc barrels and pistons for sale. These are cast, and bought from Just Kampers last year. Fitted to a bad bottom end (I didn't know that at the time) which went bang. These two survived, the other two didn't (piston skirt damage which then scored the bores...). Probably less...

    As per the title a set of four brand new Mahle 94mm stroker barrels and pistons. Won an auction on eBay - but had already agreed a deal so ended up with two sets. VW Heritage/Machine 7 won't be getting these in until August due to Mahle moving factories and not stockpiling enough of these bad...

    Just trying my luck to see if anyone has a set of 90.5 stroker pistons and barrels up for sale so that I can finally finish up my beetle engine build? Not fussed if they are not brand new, but would prefer light use or good condition only!

    Hi all, I have a Vege re-con engine that's currently in the process of being overhauled. The top of the pistons have 86.46 stamped on them and they are dished. What I was wondering was: 1. What size piston rings would i need for them And 2. Who the hell (if anyone) sells them. Any help...

    Hiya, my other request for cylinder heads has been sorted and that post is closed. Thanks everyone. However, does anyone have a decent set of 1641 (87mm?) barrels and pistons for sale? I figure I may as well up the CC's a little while i'm in there...

    When building a stroker based around a 76mm stroke crank do you need to use stroker B&Ps or will the standard work? Thinking of 76x90.5 or 76x94 with standard vw rods for a mild torquey motor on a fairly tight budget. Any thoughts?

    Just putting my type 3 1600 engine back together, i striped it down as far as the heads and barrels for a general spruce up and to replace the pushrod tubes. I've painted the case (including the the studs) and the barrels (externally) but now i'm having difficulty refitting the barrels over...
