OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Balance Set of 4 Pistons, Labor
Balance Set of 4 Pistons, Labor


 
This is the labor cost for us to balance a set of pistons purchased from us. We balance to a .5g tolerance, stock is 5g! We have seen pistons off by >20g out of the package, so choosing this option is wise. If they are too far out, we'll replace them.

It's important for you to know that when we balance the pistons and wrist pins, they are in MATCHED PAIRS. You must make sure you do not swap pins and pistons during the cleaning and assembly process! Pins are sometimes 1.5g out, and we often have a heavy pin with a light piston, and a light pin with a heavy piston. If you mix them you no longer have a balanced set!

Price: $60.00

5 of 5 Great service, great price. November 21, 2018
Reviewer: Robbie from Air-Schooled  
Parts arrived quickly, considering they were custom machined. Machine work looks professional (no stress risers or drillings with ragged edges,) and appears to be done on a lathe. Pistons were all within .3g on my scale, so better than advertised. Many thanks! - Robbie
