The clamp-pin piston almost guarantees it as a 2.6 ltr engine (I don't know, are there Austin/Morris/Wosely sedans in your country...?) but measuring the bore diameter would go a long way towards getting the right piston!

Frankly, an upgrade to floating/pressed pin rods & pistons could turn out to be the easier way to go, and YES, they are compatible with your crankshaft and cylinder block, so long as all the correct bore sizes__cylinder bore and crankpin bearing__are matched/purchased in the same sizes.

A cylinder overbore to the next size (+.020" or +.030" ) should be considered for best/most reliable outcome.

In my opinion winking smiley

Roberts,
I would check with the Auto Farm in Ontario, Canada.
I've gotten some excellent used and new parts from these guys at realistic prices.
If they don't have the parts they may be able to direct you to another source.

Get an issue of Hemmings Motor News.
It's a monthly publication that is sort of like the Used Car Owners bible and it has world wide distribution of
cars for sale, parts and other services for old car owners.

Personally if it was me I would save up the money and get a new set of matching rods and pistons but I
know it isn't that simple for everyone.

Good luck,
Peter
