Re: Bowl work for lowering CR???
This is a .020 Mahle I was working on when the lathe decided it wanted to kill me. It chucked it at me but missed.
Anyway, the piston was damn near done except for putting the long radius on the bowl lip. It's a 48cc bowl, and you can see that I didn't touch the bottom nor the little "hat" in the middle. The wall is a mirror of the stock wall, it's just opened up.
That's what mine look like anyway. Minus the carnage. If I did it again, I would probably lay the wall back flatter to open up the bowl ID even more at the top. Something more along the lines of a cummins CR
Bet that was a fun little episode. Did you have to go change?
