OM616/OM617 Piston Kit Group Buy.
I'm having some 240D pistons made, and I'd like to get some other guys together for a group buy. These would be full piston kits with rings, wrist pins, and clips. I think if we get ten guys together for a group buy, we can get the kits for ~$85 a hole, including freight. These pistons will also work for NA 5 cylinder. I'll looking into different wrist pins and having the wrist pin journals enlarged for turbo engines. I believe the pistons are the same, besides those two things.
I'm currently looking at a time frame of 2-3 months after the group buy is finalized to have the pistons in my possession to ship out. I would need half the money up front, real names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. I would give all participants the same information for myself.
I will be doing full rebuilds on 5 OM616's this year, hence why I'd like to do a piston group buy with some other guys and get a better price. I'm also hoping to get gaskets, bearings, etc at group buy prices if anyone would be interested in that as well.
Whoever is interested, post in the thread. Feel free to ask any questions. I'm running this over at peach parts as well.
