Piston and Rod

V6 Piston and Rod


Had a watery issue in a 'small' flood and managed to hydraulic one of the pistons and rods on my 1999 GTV 3L V6. I can see the crunched rod through the sump, the engine only has 40K on it so i would ideally like to salvage it with one replacement rod and piston. ***** dont list the piston any more and the rod is over 200 each.

Anyone know of anyone with one of each???? Someone upgraded to high performance pistons and lighter rods may have the originals!! I can take off 1 head (crack check) and replace the one piston and rod, new cam belt, gasket and could be back an running for a modest cost. Otherwise its a doner engine/car!!

Any help appreciated.

You need to make sure the numbers match on the piston crown and ideally the conrod is the same weight and replace the big end bearing...
