Enging Description - Cylinders


A big bore kit has larger diameter pistons, from 83.5mm to 86mm. The cylinder description is, of course, for the stock cylinder which are not suitable to be bored out to accept the larger diameter pistons. Cast iron cylinders used for the 356C engines are often used for this purpose.

The cylinders are made of carbon steel encased with light-alloy cooling fins.
