Hey all,

I'm starting to collect useable O-290 cylinder cores so as to have an exchange program. If anyone has one or two that are angle fin between the valves, not bored .020 yet and not rusted past being plated back to standard I would be interested. I have 2 already and one more that needs to be inspected. Maybe good, maybe not. These will be made available to be used with the piston kits I already have in stock. Let me know what you have.

Thanks,
Dana LaBounty

I now have a complete set of straight bored, plated cylinders being finished with flow matched ports and cryo treated. I am offering these as a complete top end for the Thorp folks first. 8.5:1 pistons, rings, pins, buttons and base O-rings included. Exchange only for your rebuildable cylinders. $3995 delivered. Available in 10 days, no excuses.

Hey all,

This top-end set is sold. If anyone else wants O-290 piston kits and cylinders properly set up to make best use of these pistons they can start a thread here and anywhere else they can think of to get other buyers organized. Once you have 3 or 4 buyers I can set up the production with the manufacturer.
