Wanted ... ZD30 Piston Standard wit 46 mm cup

Post by PaulvdMerwe » 21 Jan 2016 12:43

Good day,

Yes as the heading says, I am looking for 1 x ZD30 Piston. It is for a direct injection turbo inter cooled motor. The piston must be standard with a 46 mm cup in the crown.
I only need one piston. The one was damaged due to a dripping injector, the other pistons were checked and are well within spec. I will even consider a good 2nd hand piston, as long as it is within spec.

Please let me know.
PM me if you can assist please.

Thanks

Paul, how does the sleeve look?
Will you not consider getting a new set of pistons and rings from Alert?

Michael.
I houned the sleeves. They cleaned up very nice. Even the one that the piston failed. I measured it all up (pistons and sleaves) and there is hardly any wear.
I plan to put a new set of rings and big ends in.
I don't really want to spend to much on this engine, since I ultimately want to replace the motor with 4.5 or 4.8.

Paul, ok makes sense and I am sure you find a piston somewhere.

I have requested a price on new pistons from a friend at Alert spares just for interest sake anyway so will let you know once he gets back to me
