I should have mentioned - that measurement is ball-end to ball-end (don’t know what they’re really called). Not just the length of the aluminum shaft.

Well that's works as well because I don't know exactly what I have in the shed.

Has anyone got an original guide rh-55 tail light? I just picked up a 67 and it's one of the few pieces I need to bring it to original. Thanks!

If you still need cylinders I have a set that appear to be .060 over now. I can't really make out what is stamped on pistons.

I had to withdraw my offer on the cylinders. I apologize but I could not in good faith sell a set of cylinders I'm not even sure could be used. I know they are at least .050 over now and I cannot guarantee they would clean up at .060 or even .070. Not a set someone restoring an engine would be happy with. I got them off of Ebay, seller sold them as stock. It wasn't until I got around to cleaning the carbon off the piston several months later I found the oversize stamp which appears to be .050.
