Small piston applications and availability have been changing over time

The following chart shows the SAE recommended Automotive compression ring end gaps. These recommendations are followed for the majority of the ring line unless a certain application requires deviation from the chart.

Over the years, there have probably been a dozen "stock" 1275 pistons. Currently, three different designs are available from AE/Hepolite as "stock" replacements. All have an 8.4cc dished top, but compression ratios are carried by changing pin height (Pin height is the distance from the top of the piston to the center of the wrist pin- see dimension "A" shown here).
