2.1 Zetec pistons and rods


Recommended Posts

For sale are a set of Ford steel rods from a ST170 with 86.25mm Omega forged pistons and rings. I've decided against going 2.1 now due to funds and the fact I've not even done1000 miles since the last rebuild :blub:


All that's needed for them is a set of 9mm blacktop ARP bolts, although I'd recommend brand new rings which are £25 for a set from Omega.


The pistons are designed as high compression items but will give varying C/R dependant on the gasket, how much the head and block have been skimmed etc but in a standard engine they will give the standard compression ratio. Also remember that the blacktop head has larger combustion chambers that the silvertop. As an example in a silvertop with a 1mm gasket and 0.5mm skim on the head and block will give 12.6:1.


Each piston is 100g lighter than the standard zetec piston.


They have been crack tested and checked for roundness by the tool room where I work.
