It was a disaster dealing with Egge. The first set of pistons had the gudgeon pin holes in the wrong location being lower down 1/4". The heads could NOT be fitted.
The second set of pistons had loose gudgeon pins and had to be replaced with oversize pins. No apologies of any kind, business as usual. Egge's quality control and commitment to supplying a good product leaves a lot to be desired.
I would recommend that Egge only supplies the Russian Army, at least the Ukranians would have the benefit.

There was a fellow in SD that bought 8 pistons for a 35 cabriolet . One was too tall , he never got a refund. 15 years ago A lady in the UK was charged over a grand for shipping pistons and valves. No refund.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Be of Good Cheer
