I am looking for a set of light weight 429 .030 pistons. The ones I am running are 807grams, I need to cut down my rotating weight.

Thank you
Jim

429 pistons

I don't have any pistons but there is a way to get a good piston relatively easily, I use an aftermarket rod for a cadillac 472/500, big end is for 2.5" journal,length is 6.75", rebush small end for .990,( .997 is stock), and use a set of 460 pistons of any variety, can be done cheaper than a custom piston for 429, also could check out stuff for 440 dodge, .040 over is std 429/460 size, compression height is very close, pin is a little bigger but is easily made to work have done builds both ways and works well
