Default Help me with a piston ID....

Pulled the head off one side and this is on the top of the piston

L22 oo 060

(SBC flat tops with 4 valve reliefs.)

I tried to google it but it seems to pull in every 60 over piston made. I am trying to find out the brand and if they are cast or forged, I assume 060 means .060 over. So I guess that makes it a 358 or somthing.

Thanks
Don

after the L it's a 4 digit number, like 2252. see if you can get it with better light or something.

Ok I looked at another one and I think it says L2256 060. That particular spot on each piston seems to take the brunt of the punishment so they are all worn badly right on the 5 and 6.

That's a TRW forged piston P/N that will get you all kinds of hits on Google. Here's a thread from this board:

Thanks for the info! My laptop crashed and all I have is my iPhone and its tiny screen. Thanks for doing the legwork.
