Compreeion will be lower with the newer yr model heads you use. The brand is badger # p718 ( same as 418p federal mogel and 1143 silv-o-lite)and there made in the u.s.a. I bought these in 2006 for a 460 i was going to build up for my boat but when i took it down the bore was so nice i went back standard. . Badger was in business for almost 60 yrs. You cant get any better cast piston for street or mild hi-perf use. They have to be tough to hold up to factory spec 10.5:1 compression ! Price is $180.00 "delivered conus"

What is the depth of the dish on those pistons?
Compression height?

.240" would be about 22 cc's
.180" would be about 16 cc's.

The original 460 ford 10.5 to 1 engines had a dish depth of .140" with a slightly smaller dish size l x w. They came in at 11 cc's and with a 1.760" CH at .010" below deck with dove heads at 77 cc's offered 10.5 to 1 static with a .039 gasket.

Not trying to be a jerk. From what I can see and the comparison to the 1143 silvolite is accurate however the silvolite piston has a .230" deep dish that cc's at 22. This would offer 10 to 1 static at 0 deck with early castings...

429 high compression thunder jet pistons have two valve reliefs and are flat tops... 1972 and 1973 429 4v pistons had a small .120" deep dish to drop compression.
460 early pistons have a .140" deep dish two small eyebrows.
460 72 and up large dish low compression pistons have the .240" deep dish.

You are making a direct comparison of the badger 718p to the 418p federal mogel and 1143 silv-o-lite which have the large .240 deep recess which is 22 cc's.
The cross over lists them all as interchangeable.


In the interest of providing accurate information to the members of this forum who might be interested in these pistons do you not think it fair to accurately describe them??? I politely asked you to measure the dish to ensure that they are in fact a small dished high compression piston. Measure the dish and you will find it to be .230" to .240" deep!!!

Bottom line here they are a 22 cc dished re-builder cast piston which will when utilized with small chamber heads set at 0 deck yield 10 to 1 static c/r. Below deck and the static c/r will be in the nines...

You are absolutely correct sir. This is not a discussion forum. Whats more there was no discussion happening.

You represent the badger pistons as high compression pistons when they clearly are not. They are low compression builder pistons period... I tried to be polite.

In the interest of forum members who may not know better and because the post caught my personal interest I asked you to correctly ID your product for sale and be honest about it. In other words no discussion but rather a request to provide CORRECT and honest information about the product you are trying to sell here as well as correcting your mis information about the 429 and 460 pistons being the same excepting wrist pin location.

Instead of owning the error you have chosen to deflect and refused to answer a simple question. HOW DEEP IS THE DISH???

Thank you.
