    Are the pistons 3 1/16 or 3 3/6? If they are 3 1/16, not worth much unless someone is sleeving an engine. Also, 49 - 53 exhaust valves are worth keeping.

    I would never throw away any stock parts from old engines as long as they are still good to reuse . I understand that most end up re-boring to a bigger size but since you can only rebore so much you then have to sleeve the cylinders thus you will once again need those stock size pistons .
    You could just make a post and try and sell them . I bet someone will need them ! You could even use those on-line auctions as well .
    Just a thought !
