    Since no one wants to try. This is a piston out of a 1919 Indy car motor, 4 cylinder 2 stroke. Originals were cast iron, making new ones out of Alum.

    Interesting. I guess GN7 was only a teen that year. He hadn't started racing for a couple of more years.

    That's some crazy shit. I was thinking 2 stroke due to the defector head on the small end. It was 2 different bore sizes that threw me. Then I thought maybe some sort of steam engine,

    I guess they needed a different swept volume in the crankcase than the cylinder.
    All those rings, all that drag, cast iron piston. They must have had one great 2 stroke oil in the days. No wonder they smoked like they were abating mosquitos.


    I was still pooping yellow in a diapers when that was built Ron.

    I guessed it was a old sleeve valve engine piston, but it didn't even look close so I deleted my post.
