PISTONS – NON-GM
CLARKS offers 4 CHOICES of pistons, all with new wrist pins. For more information read below and on pages 21 & 23. If you order an
oversize piston you must use oversized RINGS (pg. 24) and CYLINDERS (pgs. 23B–23C). All CLARK pistons take regular Corvair rings –
not all pistons on the market do.
PREMIUM CAST: BETTER than the cast pistons that originally came in all Corvairs.
HI-TECH: High performance pistons cast with higher silicon alloys and precision machined, approaching the standards of forged
pistons using today’s casting technology.
F0RGED: The highest performance pistons, aluminum is denser than cast due to being forged (pressure stamped to shape).
CLARK FORGED: Precision forged & machined
Sealed Power® Forged: New generation of old TRW forged.
NOTES: 1 – ALL PISTONS in an engine SHOULD BE THE SAME.
2 – 1960: Check "NOS" on website OR switch to 1961-63 cylinders & pistons which will fit a 1960 engine.
CYLINDER/PISTON/RING SETS: See page 23C

Which PISTONS should I buy?
– PISTON SUMMARY –
See page 23 for more info
PREMIUM CAST: These are a current technology upgrade of the original pistons.
PREMIUM CAST have a 1 year guarantee (see bottom of this page). They are so exact
that the standard size can be mixed with original pistons. They are a good economical
choice for all Corvair engines. However, we do suggest you upgrade for the following
engines/situations to the HI-TECH OR FORGED pistons:
A. ALL 140 & TURBO (that will be “RUN HARD”)
B. Engines used in “severe service” – towing, motor home, desert use or “RUN HARD”.
HI-TECH: These are a true HI-PERFORMANCE PISTON (heavy duty). Someone with
a 95–11OHP can certainly use them for complete “peace of mind” but they are mainly
suggested for Turbo, 140 and other high performance applications. They have been
engineered and manufactured to approach the standards of forged pistons using today’s
advanced casting technology. HI-TECH pistons have a 2 year guarantee (see bottom of
this page).
F0RGED: Superior strength & stability for demanding owners. What makes forged pistons the best you can buy? Forging makes
the aluminum denser so it is much stronger and can withstand higher heat levels. The denser aluminum also allows for more accurate
machining and more identical weights between pistons. We offer
both Sealed Power forged pistons (when available) and Clark Forged
pistons. Both forged pistons have a moly-graphite coating on the
skirts for a decrease in scuffing and wear-especially on start up.
See page 23 for more on Clark Forged pistons.
