Burton Power is now offering genuine Hepolite pistons.

The pistons are ideal for uprated Kent Crossflow 1600 engines and have +1mm deep valve pockets; they will fit most performance camshafts including ‘234 ‘and ‘244’ without any further piston modifications.

The +.110in size is perfect for +0.090in blocks which are in need of a rebore without having to go to the expense of large bore forged pistons. (711M +0.110″ with deepened valve pockets).

The compression ratio is in the region of 10.7:1 in a 1600 engine (the exact figure will depend on block height, head gasket thickness, etc). The bowl capacity is 33.77cc.

The pistons are cast with invar (expansion-resistant) inserts similar to the original production items.

Burton Power’s genuine Hepolite pistons can be ordered as part number 18647/110 and retail at £72 each inc. VAT.
