[quote=jahns is called je pistons now [/quote]
I was not aware of that, thanks for sharing up
They were one of the few piston company I can remember from the early 1960 when I first got into hot rodding and drag racing. I'm sure there were others making them like SilvoLite, badger and so on.
SRP is a sister company to JE for street use, they are on the same web site, I was told that years ago that the Calvert Bros, not John Calvert the drag racer, I don't think he is related to them, sold JE and had a 5 year no compete contract.
They later bought out Carrillo Rods and started CP pistons after getting back into the hot rod market several years back shruggy
Good luck on your deal thumbs

Someone offer me some L2185 426 max wedge pistons. Anyone know anything about the old L2185 pistons?

They are high ratio. I think 12.5, I think the 2184 is 11.5 to 1.

Ok how would you reduce the compression down on them? Like a 10:1

First you need to calculate what the ratio would be now.

What is the deck height, chamber volume, bore and stoke.
Then plug in the dome volume.

Thick gasket may be enough or may need to whack the dome.
