Ref: 21253, 21253 020, 21253 040, 21253 060, 21253 STD, P21253, P21253-20, P21253-40, P21253-60, P21253-00.
Assembly Note: This piston will normally fit an undecked block, but the taller compression height of 1.5276" requires checking piston/deck clearance by test installing a single piston on the rod and attached to the crank. This is especially important when the block has previously been decked. Additionally, if you are taking your 1275 rods to a machine shop for piston installation, please note the offset of the rods in the block and advise your machine shop of the exact orientation. This is a somewhat unusual feature of the 1275cc engine and the shop must be made aware to prevent installation error.
Single piston replacement ring sets available separately, see R41570.
