Alright so I have a stock 1992 302. I need 1 piston (i know you supposed to replace in pairs, whatever) I called local part supply shops like piston ring or napa. I got them to mail in a piston from Toronto Ontario but its completely wrong. Can someone get me a part number for a stock 302 piston, or a part number for a company that supplies the stock sizing and piston type.

the part number on my piston is E7ZE-CA its a TRW make. Now it looks like a flat top with 4 valve reliefs but the one I ordered was that style but looked completely wrong. Do I have the style wrong?

shoot mang, since you have to tear the entire bottom end apart I would just replace all 8 and have new bearings pressed in while you were at it?

Im not some idiot rebuilding an engine im a certified technician just cannot find a stock 302 piston its stupid everyone wants a VIN from the vehicle, well my body is an 1986 and my engine is a 92 so im sol there.
