Thanks Le Jack I'm looking into those. They have some kind of maker stamp or something at the bottoms. Are these OEM or aftermarket I wonder?

I ride 0.050 pistons with '72 cylinders. There are no problems in using such pistons. I would be afraid to use 0.070. Unfortunately, Wiseco offers pistons up to 0.040.
