Hi all... finally got a used piston for the SB...
But.. should there be any visible wear in the
"pin-hole"(?) He didn't include the pin... 
There seems to be even wear on both sides of the
inside ends of the hole... At about 10 and 2
o'clock... It's an even fan shape and stops 3 or 4mm
short of the clip groove... 
Is it knacked do you think?

Some recent posts about floating VW's reminded me of
being a kid in Namibia... When the river beds flooded
once a year VW's were always the first one's
through... sometimes hours before any other make of
car... It was a major source of entertainment for us
kids... (no TV service at the time...) and a chance to
earn a couple of rand for smokes and soda, pushing
people out...

an' for anyone who can make it here... (thanks for the
thought...) we have a fully tooled and equipped
village/community workshop with two ramp/lifts,
welders, press etc. for use of members of our "youth
association"... (there are only 2 youths in the
village... the rest of us just feel young...) you are
welcome any time... (good fishing too... trout/salmon
river runs along our back yard...)
