How good are JP Pistons?

  "These are quality pistons.  I have built three engines using JP pistons and I am thoroughly satisfied with their product". The car is running in this photo and no smoke.  Lynn James, California



  "I Have the JP pistons in this car and have done approximately 15,000 miles no smoking    My other Austin 1937 also has JP piston +80 thou and this one it has done 3000 miles no smoke either. Geoff Stephens, Australia"



  Lynn and I built the engine for my 1931 American Austin roadster back in October of 2002.  It runs very well and has never smoked, not even at first start up.  Mike Harrell Stockton, California.
