    I bought these AEB pistons without seeing them hoping to fit them with my IE rods, just given them a quick bath and some det marks/valve contack marks have become apparent. They look bad cause they have oil in them and you can't really feel them with your finger. What do you guys think? Would you fit them?

    Are AEB pistons 9.0:1 or 9.5:1 and 19mm or 20mm wrist pins?

    I bought them on the understanding that they are 9;5;1 and 20mm pins, better be anyway or I'm in s%*t as my rods are 20mm and my APY pistons are 19mm :(
