Problem found, need standard size 258 piston

I have finished disassembling my 258 from some earlier breakage. I have a nice hole in the #3 piston. It didn't hurt the walls and I just put in new rings about 500 miles ago. I am wanting to see if anyone has a used standard size piston that I could use to replace mine.
This would certainly help to get the wife off of my back (she wants me to sell the "worthless peice of ...). I figure if I can get it running again, a moving target will be harder for her to get on me about. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Problem found, need standard size 258 piston

So you could make a deal with LoneWolf for the fresh rebuild he has in his storage? Might be able to trade it out in labor dismantling all the peepsters [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. He said today that there are 4-5 more on the way and the building is ready to rough in!
I'll ask the locals here....

Come on, with all of the rebuilds that have been done around here, no one kept an original piston in decent shape? Help to keep a Jeep from being sold to appease a pregnant wife. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
